OT: The War on Drugs (band)

Obviously Stones fans have great taste in music so I'm guessing I'm not the only one here who's heard this band. Their last album, Lost in the Dream, was voted #1 album a couple years ago on Amazon (& deservingly so IMHO). Listening right now to their just released A Deeper Understanding. Stellar stuff. At times dreamy, often rocking - just a very unique sound. Excellent album!!

Excellent record. I read an article that compared them to Wilco (with obvious differences). That's not too far off the mark IMHO.

I can almost agree with the Wilco comparison, yes. I read some comparisons to Petty, Dylan, Bruce - which I don't quite get. There's more than a touch of Pink Floyd there too. This new album is outstanding- as are their other 2!

Went to their concert yesterday in Cologne. Really impressed! Their last two albums are outstanding, but live it's even better. This guy really plays a nasty guitar! Not 'stones like' at all, but I hear a lot of resemblance with Bob Dylan (voice/intonation of the lyrics), Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, Dire Straits (listen to the solo on 'Ocean between the waves', highly recommended), and also a touch of Pink Floyd.

Thumbs up. These guys are a local band for us in Philadelphia and I have followed for a few years. I agree with the Pink Floyd comparisons: extended riffing, galloping drums and dreamy sound. Maybe a little My Morning Jacket in there as well.

Also check out Strand of Oaks. Also from Philly. Similar sound but a little more rocking.
