THE SASSIEST: The War On Drugs in the Best of Interviews

It’s The War On Drugs in the sassiest interview to come our way. Vice caught up with Adam and Dave while they were at Oya Festival last month and sat down for quite the chit-chat. We’ll let the boys do that talking –> enjoy above.

The War On Drugs have a couple of shows with The Walkmen in October and will end the year with performances at Tokyo’s Hostess Club Weekender and Austin City Limits Festival. Dates HERE.

RICHARD SWIFT Releases Free Digital EP, Hits the Road With Stereolab and The Walkmen

Secretly Canadian is pleased to announce “Ground Trouble Jaw,” a new digital EP from RICHARD SWIFT, which is being given away for free for a limited time via our friends at EMusic and Other Music. The EP is sure to please fans of classic Swift, as the five tracks run the gamut from 60s girl group pop to Motown soul to Onasis-flavored 50s street gang doo-wop to synth-fueled pop classics (think Prince sitting in on the “Plastic Ono” sessions) – all with Swift’s emerging trademark vocals which bring his songs to life like few other singers do today.

You can find it for FREE from EMusic HERE!

Additionally, Swift will hit the road at the end of the month in support of his good buddies The Walkmen, following it up with a string of dates with Stereolab.
