The War On Drugs "A Deeper Understanding"
A Deeper Understanding, the latest from The War On Drugs, is everything you want it to be. Back are the wistful, AOR, Hornsby-esque vibes, coupled with tremendous playing, and a love for songs as long as the line for tickets to the (not yet actually a thing) Ramones Broadway Musical Hey! Ho! Let’s Go. We couldn’t love the fact more that there are still bands with guitars playing rock and roll that sounds great live after a few beers. There was once a discussion in the office about WOD that went thusly: “what if we just closed up shop, and followed The War On Drugs around for a few years. Would that be ok?” We decided that although it wounds amazing, it’s probably not the best idea financially for us. But this is the kind of band that garners that sort of devotion. Check out “Strangest Thing” and see if you don’t feel like following them around too.
