Is there any new music coming in 2020?

I kinda like this band

Of you would’ve posted this question three days ago I would’ve unequivocally said yes. But they played zero new songs at the two philly shows that they just played. They did play a ton from slave ambient though.


If you were there, lucky for you. I saw them in Berkeley a year or two back and they totally ignored Slave Ambient iirc. I love that album and LITD is a masterpiece... the latest one doesn’t really hit me though, other than Pain. What am I missing?

Are TWOD the band of the decade? I think they are.

For me? yea probably.

I think the latest one is a hell of a follow up to LITD. I think "thinking of a place" into "In Chains" is one of the best 1-2 combos there is.

a deeper understanding is more complete and balanced album than lost in a dream. i prefer it, but it's like picking your favorite kid.

and strat is right -- that thinking of place into in chains is perfect.

A Deeper Understanding is a great pandemic listen.

No. I dont know. Maybe. Wilco has been around long enough to wear out. WoD's have not yet. We'll see with their next couple albums!

strat, let's make an amalgamation of the best of both bands. 20 songs (10 songs each). the ultimate two-band mix. what do you think?

Can I get in on this? I'm not very familiar with either band. So you guys could make these mixes for me and I'll decide who wins?

You know, forget the “best.” How about what fits the best instead.

War on Drugs aren't really a "make a mix" band yet -- they only have a few albums, and their trajectory thus far has basically just been a refining of one aesthetic. I imagine most mixes will have a lot of overlap.

Just listen to Lost in the Dream and A Deeper Understanding.

i don't think random playlists are the best way to compare two bands you're barely familiar with
