mp3: The War On Drugs – ‘Snake Tongues’

Well the last few weeks have been a mesmerisingly prolonged high for The War On Drugs, receiving pertinent critical acclaim for their second full-length Slave Ambient. Frontman and primary sound-carpenter Adam Granduciel is a double barrelled shotgun of anthems and textured instrumental ambience, so it seems. Have a listen below:

Slave Ambient is seeing a remarkable rerelease on red cassette tape, which features a B-side with six new statements of celestial ambient intent. The thing is, this was probably made using nothing but guitars, but don’t hold me to that.
