War on Drugs brings fine new music to Union Transfer
With its 2011 album Slave Ambient, Philadelphia band The War on Drugs stepped into the big time. The album's dreamy, forward-pushing songs, written and sung by bandleader Adam Granduciel, garnered widespread acclaim. Slave Ambient landed on loads of year-end best lists, including The Inquirer's.
