Philadelphia band The War On Drugs has been a critical favorite since 2011, when its Slave Ambient album landed on oodles of year-end best-of lists. This year’s terrific Lost In The Dream is receiving even more accolades. Gorgeously hazy and downtempo, the record reflects frontman Adam Granduciel’s recent bout with depression, but injects just enough life and vitality throughout to make things ultimately hopeful. Plus, some of the songs kind of sound like Don Henley’s “Boys Of Summer.”
Milwaukee will get a chance to experience the pleasantly chill War On Drugs firsthand when the band comes to the Pabst Theater Sunday, September 21. Chicago’s Califone will open the show. General admission tickets are $20, and are on sale now.
