New Music Discovery: The War On Drugs
Not only does this band have a really cool name, they're also playing Capitol Hill Block Party this year, and they've still got that "New Band Smell" so you can be a total hipster about them and pretend you heard 'em first. The War On Drugs album definitely has a shoegaze-y, mellow vibe but out of nowhere they'll hit you with some big guitar notes and suddenly remind you of Arcade Fire with a more Americana influence. For real, they're that good. Check out their single "Red Eyes" below and let me know what you think! -Pepper
