Seriously folks, please check out both of these great records!
The War on Drugs has a new EP called Future Weather out on Secretly Canadian on October 26th, and S.C. are also releasing Nightlands‘ debut Forget the Mantra on November 9th. I’m friends with these guys, worked a bit on both of these records, and I’m super psyched for them to be out!
Check out the press on the Secretly Canadian website…
My buddy Dave Hartley (The War On Drugs, Buried Beds, BC Camplight) has spent the last year plus writing and recording a pretty lush record that is not easily pinned down. Pitchfork is referring to it as “Bliss-Pop” and has featured it in yesterday’s Forkcast. Check out what they have to say about Forget The Mantra and listen to “300 Clouds” here.
And if you like what you hear then here’s the entire record via Bandcamp!
It was a real treat helping Dave out with some drum tracking and gear-lending last Fall. So happy that this record is growing legs! Congratulations Dave!
