ALBUM RELEASE // The War On Drugs ‘Lost In The Dream’ Out Now, Tour Starts Tonight In Philadelphia

It’s been over two years since The War On Drugs‘ critically praised album, Slave Ambient, came out and the Philadelphia band’s newest offering, Lost In The Dream is now out worldwide.

Setting up shop along the East Coast in Philadelphia, North Carolina, New York, and New Jersey, Adam Granduciel of TWOD somehow found time to record the new album between two years of constant touring. Lost In The Dream is a familiar kick in the gut reminding listeners what music is supposed to sound like, making you want to run Rocky-style through the streets (or at least us anyways).

If you haven’t already seen them, get in-depth look at the story behind the new album from this fantastic Grantland profile and this great feature from Stereogum.

Lost In The Dream is available now from your local record store, SC Distribution, Amazon, or on iTunes.

Critics praise the new album:

“the band’s most lustrous, intricately detailed, and beautifully rendered record to date”

- Pitchfork | Best New Music

“If Slave Ambient represented a breakthrough, this one is an out-and-out star-maker that should rank among the year’s best albums”

- SPIN | 9/10

“Adam Granduciel’s impassioned songs stop short of lighters- aloft choruses, twisting buffed-up sounds into exquisite shapes”

- The Guardian | ★★★★

LISTEN // Gardens & Villa Share Second Single “Colony Glen” Via Stereogum, New Album ‘Dunes’ Out 2/4



Not content on giving just one earworm to tide you over until their new Tim Goldsworthy-produced album Dunes comes out February 4th, the guys from Gardens & Villa have shared a second single “Colony Glen”, via Strereogum’s exclusive premiere yesterday. Like first single “Bullet Train” before it, “Colony Glen” has the killer combo of an addictive synth line under lead vocalist Chris Lynch cutting through yet another seductive bass line. Don’t be fooled, “Colony Glen” is a jam that will not escape your brain after your first listen above or on our YouTube / Soundcloud. After this second look at Dunes, the 4th really couldn’t come soon enough.

Dunes is now available for pre-order from iTunes, Amazon, SC Distribution, and your local record store. Act fast as a small amount of early pre-orders from SC Distribution and limited copies at your local indie store (call ahead or go in to confirm) of the LP include a limited-edition colored magenta vinyl. The bundle edition, available exclusively from SC Distribution, includes a limited edition Gardens & Villa tote bag and all pre-orders are automatically entered to win a copy of Dunes on vinyl signed by the entire band.
