I imagine that Brother David hates The War On Drugs … sorry if I am wrong … but I freaking love them. This track is beautiful, so beautiful. The guitar break / solo / thing in the 3rd / 4th minute is immaculate. I grew up in the 80’s, I loved Springsteen, my Dad still loved Dylan. The War on Drugs are still finding fertile creative ground in these two artists’ output from this decade (not often considered to be their most influential). And I relish what they’re doing. Cool it may not be. I wasn’t going for cool anyway.

That’s really nice, that is. I’ve never really got into this band, but it’s not because they sound shit. They don’t. Ships in the night.
Never got on with them. You’re quite right!
