Philly’s the War on Drugs is a strong outfit built around the Dylanesque songwriting of Adam Granduciel—and though Kurt Vile left the band a while ago, its colorful dreaminess is reminiscent of his solo work. Their music begs to be played on a road trip or on a sunny back patio with a few beers—or at a co-headlining gig with dream-pop group Alvvays at the Bowl.
