The War On Drugs – Lost In The Dream (2014)

Imagine Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan locked in a room together with nothing but a weeks worth of acid to enjoy, only to then be given a bag full of uppers and transferred straight into a recording studio. This would be the result. Confused and weary, but strangely uplifting.

The hazy guitar and psychedelic Americana rock on this album has the sound and feel of both legends all over it, but the synthesiser and piano addition adds an extra layer. I absolutely love it! I really enjoyed Slave Ambient but for me this is a superior album. It is probably my favourite album of the year so far.

To quote Mark Renton, “it’s good….oh, it’s really fucking good”.
