It's not often that my opening interview gambit is "I'VE BEEN LISTENING TO YOUR ALBUM ON REPEAT SINCE I GOT IT, I AM OBSESSED," but it's also not often that I get to listen to something as great as the War on Drugs' latest, Lost in the Dream. It's a catchy, contagious rock album that pays homage to classic influences like Bob Dylan and Neil Young but also feels fresh and exciting. Granduciel formed TWOD in 2005 with fellow Philadelphia emigrant Kurt Vile (who's since left the band) and has released two full-length albums (Wagonwheel Blues and Slave Ambient) and two EPs (Barrel of Batteries and Future Weather). Granduciel's already spoken extensively about the making of the album and what he was going through when he wrote it. I decided to talk to him about, well, less intense shit.
