The War on Drugs is an indie rock quartet from Philadelphia. They formed in 2005, but have only released two albums, including last year’s critically acclaimed Slave Ambient. One of the founding members was Kurt Vile, who has gone on to earn a ton of fame as a solo artist. He left the band in 2008, after their 2007 debut Barrel of Batteries.
I don’t know anything about this band, but when more than one friend had Slave Ambient in their “best of 2011” lists, I quickly downloaded it. They all made references to Kurt Vile when they talked/wrote about Slave Ambient, and to be fair, I’m not really into Kurt Vile at all. Still, I got the album. And I like it.
Since I can’t tell you anything else about the band, I’ll just get to the song.
“Come to the City” by The War on Drugs
Unfortunately, I’m not going to offer any insight or analysis of the song. Just enjoy it.
