The War on Drugs
Yeah, during their 2007 tour, they played “Planet Telex,” “The Bends,” and “Street Spirit,” so he must not have caught them on that tour. I can’t remember them playing anything from The Bends in 2011, but I distinctly remember “Paranoid Android” and “Pyramid Song.” I definitely agree that their setlists are nice mix of old and new material.
Living in PA my whole life, and now living in Philly, this article really soldified why I love this band. Driving in the car by myself, with this record, with the volume turned all the way up, has been my favorite way of listening to it so far. The War on Drugs, and Kurt Vile, are the best musical ambassadors Philly could ask for and “Lost in the Dream” deserves all the hype it is getting. Thanks for this feature.
Is Beck un-hip now? I wasn’t aware of that.
And “The Missing” might be the highlight of this record.
Holy crap, thank you for reminding me about that song.
I was thinking the same thing. They have too many top-10 worthy songs. Not a bad thing.
Yeah, the second half of KoL (Lotus Flower – Seperator) is just about my favorite sequence of Radiohead songs ever. I don’t know what it is, but I find the guitar lick in Seperator to be downright fucking awesome.
These two right here are what you’re missing.
