The War on Drugs – “Snake Tongues” / “Come To The City”

The War on Drugs’ recent release Slave Ambient is an album that is one of those “love at first listen” types.  Looking at Slave Ambient from a completely surface level of observation, you’ll find guitars that melt into organs and noise that floats around vocals in search of something great.  Mastering sonic textures that can so perfectly piece together snapshots of some great road trip, one could only assume that any ambient track by the band would be equally as mesmerizing.  On the limited edition Slave Ambient cassette, the band released a collection of b-sides that could only be described by the lonely feeling of staring out at an empty city as rain falls down a grimy window pain.  Check out one of the tracks “Snake Tongues” below as well as the video for “Come To The City”.
