WATCH // The War on Drugs on “Austin City Limits” This Weekend

The War on Drugs - Scott Newton

The War On Drugs recently wrapped up eighteen-plus months of touring in support of their tremendous third album, Lost In The Dream. After selling out multiple tours all over North America, Europe and Australia, performing at major festivals across the globe, and playing a slew of late night and daytime television programs, the bands nonstop run culminated with a sold out show at New Yorks famed Radio City Music Hall and a triumphant performance at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.

While its time for the Drugs to take some much-deserved time off, they still have one special performance to share with you. This weekend on Saturday, November 7th at 8pm CT/9pm ET, “Austin City Limits” will present The War On Drugs powerful debut episode. Check local listing for times, and immediately following the initial broadcast, watch the entire episode online for a limited time here.

LISTEN // Here We Go Magic Streams ‘Be Small’ Via Noisey

SC315

Here We Go Magics Be Small, out October 16th on Secretly Canadian, is streaming now via Noisey accompanied by an in-depth interview with the band. The new album finds HWGM taking a smaller approach to production and finding more intimate soundscapes but hosts no less acrobatics of musicianship and singular sonic ambition. Over six years and, now, four albums, HWGM has always found its own, idiosyncratic path through fidgety prog-rock, bliss-pop and sound collage experimentations with a heavy focus on groove. You can hear how these songs likely began as Luke Temples bedroom folk riffs, but where they ultimately end up here with the help of longtime HWGM collaborator and multi-instrumentalist Michael Bloch, as well as Austin Vaughn on drums is near-transcendent and celestial.

HWGM has become a real poets poet among NYC musicians and bands. And its clear why. You can watch their hands and movements all you want. You can try and count out the time signatures. But youre almost always left dumbfounded as to how their songs with those seemingly simple jagged, syncopated licks and floating melodies developed from Point A to Point B, where all is a swirl of sound and emotion and groove, jaw-on-the-floor stuff. In these times, where easy answers are a click away, we need this sort of thing more than we know, to be made, again, into babies amazed at the wondrous mobile spinning above us.
