The War On Drugs Lost in the Dream

Australian T3 - - MUSIC TO YOUR EARS -

This al­bum of hazy, at­mo­spheric Amer­i­cana is filled with beau­ti­ful heartache. While the es­capades of for­mer mem­ber, Kurt Vile, have re­ceived most of the at­ten­tion in re­cent years, The War On Drugs’ main man Adam Gran­duciel has crafted a fas­ci­nat­ing lis­ten in Lost In The Dream. It bal­ances re­flec­tive, del­i­cate mo­ments with pas­sages of mo­men­tum and re­lease that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Bruce Spring­steen record­ing. The Boss’ in­sis­tent hope­ful­ness is lack­ing, though. This is an al­bum about be­ing bro­ken with no rem­edy in sight, but if you don’t lis­ten to the lyrics it can also be a toetap­ping good time. lis­ten to: An Ocean Be­tween the Waves
