The War on Drugs Performs “Strangest Things”

Recorded live on KEXP.

September 11, 2017

KEXP presents The War On Drugs performing "Strangest Thing" live in the KEXP studio. Recorded August 1, 2017.This track from The War on Drug's newest album, A Deeper Understanding, burns slow, yearning toward an epic conclusion. Like much of the album, "Strangest Things" is meticulously produced, bouyed along by sweeping guitar numbers and a voice reminiscent of Bob Dylan. While the song departs somewhat from the steady, Americana road-trip anthems of the band's previous records, it sacrifices none of frontman Adam Granduciel's musical appeal. Instead, the song becomes a singular rock and roll experience all its own.Host: Troy NelsonAudio Engineers: Jeff Byrd & Kevin SuggsAudio Mastering: Matt OgazCameras: Jim Beckmann, Alaia D'Alessandro & Justin WilmoreEditor: Jim Beckmann
