Watch The War On Drugs Perform Lost In The Dream For World Cafe Live In Philly

We’ve all been riding pretty hard for the new War On Drugs record, Lost In The Dream. We did a gigantic feature on Adam Granduciel and the band, then Tom wrote a glowing Premature Evaluation of the album — but hell, we’ve been stoked on this thing since “Red Eyes” dropped last December. Heck, you guys basically claimed the comments section of our G I R L PE as a place to discuss Lost In The Dream, because no such dedicated space existed at that moment. Which rules! It’s so much fun to see an album capture people’s imaginations so intensely, and this is an album that deserves it. Anyway, the War On Drugs did an afternoon set at World Cafe Live, and they played most of Lost In The Dream, plus three tracks from Slave Ambient (“Brothers,” “Baby Missiles,” and “I Was There”). You can watch video of those performances below. “Red Eyes” is still my jam, FYI. (“Woo!”) What’s yours?
