mp3: The War on Drugs cover John Lennon

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.
