It’s been over two years since The War On Drugs‘ critically praised album, Slave Ambient, came out and the Philadelphia band’s newest offering, Lost In The Dream is now out worldwide.
Setting up shop along the East Coast in Philadelphia, North Carolina, New York, and New Jersey, Adam Granduciel of TWOD somehow found time to record the new album between two years of constant touring. Lost In The Dream is a familiar kick in the gut reminding listeners what music is supposed to sound like, making you want to run Rocky-style through the streets (or at least us anyways).
Critics praise the new album:
“the band’s most lustrous, intricately detailed, and beautifully rendered record to date”
– Pitchfork | Best New Music
“If Slave Ambient represented a breakthrough, this one is an out-and-out star-maker that should rank among the year’s best albums”
– SPIN | 9/10
“Adam Granduciel’s impassioned songs stop short of lighters- aloft choruses, twisting buffed-up sounds into exquisite shapes”
– The Guardian | ★★★★
