If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ll know that I’ve been championing The War on Drugs‘ new longplayer Slave Ambient as one of the top albums of the year. In a previous post, I mentioned the Drugs’ deep sonic textures that play off the title “Slave Ambient”—a 13 minute ambient jam that is sampled beneath many of the tracks—providing the album with its spacey underpinnings. In the coming weeks, those ambient tracks will be put on display on Side 2 of a new limited edition cassette (Side 1 features the LP) via Mirror Universe Tapes. Below, you can stream/download the first jam off Side 2.
MP3: “Snake Tongues”
