The War on Drugs in Concert

The new album by the Philadelphia band, The War on Drugs, has been on my spin list for the past few weeks. They mix a kind of Springsteen/Petty classic rock with motorik drive and soaring songs like "Come to the City" and "Baby Missiles" that are long on texture but also hooky as all get-out. Above is a shot of the band's leader, Adam Granduciel, in concert at The Independent.

Below is a video for the single, "Come to The City."
