I reviewed my life affirming experience at The War on Drugs show for Seizure Chicken and haven’t been able to escape the spell that the night put on me. After posting this, the lead track off their first record Wagonwheel Blues, I’m going to slowly walk away and make an attempt to put my brain back together.
Sidenote: Wagonwheel Blues was one of the last pieces of vinyl that I ever bought at Atomic Records (along with Weather Report’s Black Market, 2 rare White Stripes 7 inches and EPMD’s Strictly Business). I don’t quite remember how much buzz there was floating around about The War on Drugs, but I do remember that I liked the record cover and the price.
Enjoy this fan made video for “Arms Like Boulders.”
