Album Review: The War On Drugs – LIVE DRUGS

Posted on 19 Nov 2020 at 7:46am

‘Over 40 hard drives of recorded shows’ have gone into The War On Drugs’ first live album.

Whether you gamble or not, you have to admit that the post-millennial odds of acts like Tame Impala and The War On Drugs becoming some of the planet’s most successful would’ve been pretty long.

Yet here we are, TI’s Kevin Parker the global king of the sad banger, and whilst Adam Granduciel’s had to take his share of critical lumps – Direr Straits, Springsteen lite etc – the last word has unquestionably been his.

We’re in a momentous era however where the live album (the clue being in the LIVE DRUGS title) is something of a double conceit, moments ripped from an event that you probably weren’t at and, for the latter part of the year, something most could only experience remotely on a screen.

Granduciel neatly side-steps this though by relying not on one performance but many, the ten tracks here offered up from different shows stored amongst the 40 hard drives that make up a personal chronicle across continents and years.

The War On Drugs announce release of new collection LIVE DRUGS

Posted on 06 Oct 2020 at 9:41am

The War On Drugs can easily be divided into two entities; the painstakingly crafted, multi-layered sound of Adam Granduciel in the studio, and the more considered, full band rock experience of their live shows.

It’s the evolution of that live sound over the course of the past decade which will be the focus of LIVE DRUGS, a new collection to be released on Granduciel’s own Super High Quality Records label on November 20th.
