Music Monday Jan. 23: The War on Drugs


There is a radio show on CBC here in Canada that occasionally does a feature called SYNTH: Songs You Need To Hear.

Now, I can’t say to someone, “You’ll like this song” (or book for that matter) because I can’t presume that others will share my taste in music (or books), so it is safer to say, “You might like this” and if they don’t like it, so be it. Maybe you will find a new favorite.

I don’t think there is a band out there that I can honestly say I enjoy every song they released. The Police come close, and maybe Tom Petty. It’s a difficult task to continually write appealing songs, just as it is to write entertaining books.

Some band’s sound will evolve to the point where their last/latest album is radically different from the first (Marillion), while others won’t mess with what made them popular and write the same song over and over [cough-AD/DC].

So far, The War on Drugs is holding steady.

The War on Drugs is an American rock band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, formed in 2005. The band consists of Adam Granduciel, David Hartley, Robbie Bennett, Charlie Hall, Jon Natchez, Anthony LaMarca and Eliza Hardy Jones.
