For years, I've seen people writing about Coachella's Sunset Bands -- the festival's innate ability to pick the exact right act for that beautiful moment where the oppressive sun goes down and the sky does amazing things. I'm glad the War On Drugs were my first. People come to Coachella to party, so when bands make music that isn't conducive to partying, they can find themselves in tough spots. (Ask Ride, whose tiny and sleepy crowd was pretty sad to behold.) Whereas people like Tame Impala and Lykke Li found ways to project their downbeat music, TWOD just played their beautiful blank-faced glassy guitar zone-outs into the void. They were rewarded with the smallest main-stage crowd I saw anyone draw all day. But that just meant there was more room to find an unclaimed spot, sit on the ground, and take it all in. Even if you're not going to see the War On Drugs at any festival anytime soon, this is a pretty great way to hear them, and you can do it at home.
