The War On Drugs, A Deeper Understanding 2LP (Limited Edition, Translucent Tangerine Vinyl)

RM210.00

The War On Drugs’ fourth studio album, originally released in 2017, is repressed on double translucent tangerine vinyl and is a one-time pressing. This vinyl release is a part of Atlantic Records’ 75th Anniversary vinyl collection.

For much of the three-and-a-half year period since the 2014 release of Lost in the Dream, The War On Drugs’ frontman Adam Granduciel led the charge for his Philadelphia-based sextet as he holed up in studios in New York and Los Angeles to write, record, edit, and tinker but, above all, to busy himself in work. Teaming up with engineer Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, Weezer), Granduciel challenged the notion of what it means to create a fully realized piece of music in today’s modern landscape. Calling on his bandmates bassist Dave Hartley, keyboarding Robbie Bennett, drummer Charlie Hall and multi-instrumentalists Anthony LaMarca and Jon Natchez continuously throughout the process, the result is a “band record” in the noblest sense, featuring collaboration, coordination, and confidence at every turn. Through those years of relocation, the revisiting and reexamining of endless hours of recordings, unbridled exploration and exuberance, Granduciel’s gritty love of his craft succeeded in pushing the band to great heights.
