The War On Drugs – Pushing Corn

Now isn’t Secretly Canadian just the cleverest label around. Not content with just bringing Philadelphia’s finest the War on Drugs on board they then proceed to give the bands first EP away for free. But, I see through their devilish plan. Give the initial stash away and pretty soon folks all over the place will become hopelessly addicted. So by the time their full length ‘Wagonwheel Blues’ comes around pasty faced punters up and down the land will be shivering and shaking until the War on Drugs peculiar take on Americana is wholly ingested. Two or three listens reveals why addiction is a natural product of the War on Drugs. I mean ‘Pushing Corn’ just boasts thats slow inexorable grip on your attention. The retro vibes are obvious but it all sounds curiously of their own making. When it comes to this band at least just say yes kids. The War on Drugs are currently touring Europe and will stop off in Crawdaddy on the 17th of this month. KD
