mp3: The War on Drugs cover John Lennon

Publish date:
War on Drugs

We love the War on Drugs' new record Lost in the Dream, but we're psyched to hear they're not just recapitulating the record in the live setting - they've added a cover of John Lennon's 1973 jam "Mind Games" to their repertoire. Thanks to the indefatigable NYC Taper, you can snatch a great-quality live recording of the cover, which sees the band break out all the weird sounds they've got (horns, strings, weird guitar tones, belting vocals) over a blissful seven minutes of woozy, lighters-up jamming. It's just another excuse to catch the band when they come to your city. Check it out.
