Here's what my cat thinks of the new War on Drugs album, with photos and video

The War on Drugs released its new album Lost in the Dream today. The band also plays the Bluebird on March 26. Here's what's going to happen now: I'm going to listen to the new War on Drugs album with my cat, Kitten and we're going to review it track-by-track. Her credentials are that I once wrote a dance jam about her. Also she has the attention span of, you know, a cat, so this could take a while.

"Under The Pressure"

Mark Sanders: Well this one starts out weird. Is that a drum machine someone forgot to turn off? It must be setting us up for something seriously grandiose.... Oh, here it is: a few seconds in. War on Drugs front man Adam Granduciel is a humble singer. He knows his voice isn't the most polished, so he relies on short phrasings to convey... something. Man, I don't know. It's rock music.
