Yeah man. "The War on Drugs" was a great new find of 2015. What's your favorite track by them?

I first heard one one of their songs on Radio Paradise about a year ago and went on YouTube. If you search "KEXP War on Drugs," you’ll find a 35-minute video which really turned me on to them, so I bought the CD. I liked it a lot and saw them in concert last June.
Overall, I like them, but after listening to the CD and seeing them, I feel like the songs start to sound the same. I actually liked the KEXP video best. The lead guitar and singer seems a genuine rock star in it. I’m looking forward to their next record.
Ncarv, I complain to my wife about the band's music sounding the same , and she says, Duh, they're going to have a sound , they are a band , and that's their sound. Makes sense sort of . Did you try their other albums I mentioned? They are all great , and I don't think they sound generic. Do you listen to Spotify ? It's free and you can check out their other albums . Try Wagonwheel . Although Slave Ambient is very fine as well.
rja, have you explored their other albums?
and check out the band Strand of Oaks . Their last album was fantastic. And they destroy live. Here is a studio wkxp performance :
