Philadelphia outfit The War On Drugs are keeping MOJO’s neo-’80s vibespotters busy with their second full-length album, Slave Ambient. It’s got our shoulder pads a-twitching with its epic pop vistas, where Lloyd Cole’s Perfect Skin, U2’s Bad, The Waterboys and Felt are randomly invoked. It’s out for reals on August 15.
Meanwhile, download the single Baby Missiles. It’s a bit like The Arcade Fire got busy with Jona Lewie.
