Today we've got a live performance with the Philadelphia-based band. We'll also learn about perfectionist Adam Granduciel's creative process and relationship with early band member Kurt Vile.

We are major fans of the band The War On Drugs. Today's show presents an epic live performance and interview with leader Adam Granduciel. The band formed in Philadelphia in 2005 and was critically lauded in 2011 for the album Slave Ambient, which put them on the map.

Their new album is called Lost In The Dream, and as we will hear in Michaela Majoun's interview, perfectionist Granduciel took a long time to get it right. We'll find out about his process, his relationship with early band member Kurt Vile and hear some amazing music.
