There was a lot of Bob talk going on when the War on Drugs stopped by The Current studio between their two-night stand in the First Avenue mainroom. Frontman Adam Granduciel, whose fridge is plastered in Dylan magnets, was excited to be in Minneapolis, home of Sound 80, the studio where Bob Dylan recorded Blood on the Tracks (the second time around).
Being in Minnesota, it was fitting that Adam Granduciel and company Charlie Hall, drums; Dave Hartley, bass; Robbie Bennett, piano; John Natchez, saxophone and Hammond M3; Anthony LaMarca, guitar covered Bob Dylan's "Born in Time" in their opening night encore at First Avenue. And as the War on Drugs loaded their equipment into The Current's studio, the band decided to give "Tangled Up in Blue" a shot, one of the tracks Bob Dylan re-cut for Blood on the Tracks in the historic Minneapolis recording studio.
Listen to the full session to hear Adam Granduciel chat with Jill Riley of The Current's Morning Show about his past Minneapolis performance experiences at the 7th St. Entry and at the Cedar Cultural Center, what the Philadelphia music scene is like and about the significance of the War on Drugs' album title Lost in the Dream.

- The War on Drugs
- First Listen: The War On Drugs, 'Lost In The Dream' Highly emotional rock that reads as low-stakes at first, Lost in the Dream is evocative and pleasant if you let it float by in the background. But it's made with hooks that sink in deep.
- Kurt Vile performs in The Current studio Philly rocker Kurt Vile has been a psych-rock and folk-influenced racket for the better part of a decade now, both as a founding member of the indie-rock band The War on Drugs (which he left in 2008) and also as a solo artist.
