I finally got around to this album today, and I was really impressed. The synth-drone atmospherics combined with what I have to describe as Dylan-esque vocals is a unique pairing that works really well, I think.

From the clips I've heard, this album sounds like a very worthwhile investment.

These guys were pretty good last night. I bought their record, so we'll see how that goes. Since I went to the show just to see Purling Hiss, I knew I could leave at any time during The War on Drugs' set. I lasted until 12:20, with only two songs left (so he said), but only because I was so damn tired. I liked them very much. At first I though they were a little too soothing. That's the word that came to mind during the songs: "soothing". But I liked the sound of those songs very much. His voice reminds me of someone, and it's driving me nuts right now. I'll think of it. I'll put the album in the car spinner and give it a go. I expect to be very happy with it.

He sounds almost TOO much like Kurt Vile to me, if that might be who you were thinking of.

No, that's not it. I've barely heard any Kurt Vile, so that's not who's in my head.
