the war on drugs

i can't get enough of this new track from the war on drugs, who's forthcoming full length debut, wagonwheel blues, will be available june 17th...the philadelphia foursome take familiar elements & influences (dylan, springsteen, the arcade fire) & manage to create a fresh & accessible indie-rock sound...they'll be in town for a show at the empty bottle on may 23rd, & if you haven't already, make sure to download their excellent 2006 ep, barrell of batteries, for free over at secretly canadian.
