For those who have not yet sought out The War On Drugs’ new album, Slave Ambient, we offer up a chance to hear one of the album’s finest cuts, and The War On Drugs’ main man Adam Granduciel’s favorite track, “Your Love Is Calling My Name” via NPR Music’s “Song of the Day.” “Baby Missiles,” “Come to the City,” and now this sizzler?! C’mon. . . its time to jump on The War On Drugs-lovin’ bandwagon.

NPR really knows what they’re talking about. Looks like eMusic subscribers and The National do too! Slave Ambient has topped the eMusic chart for this week, and The National has just announced that The War On Drugs will be one of the very special guests opening their Beacon Theatre shows in December. Perhaps this December show will inspire some other select dates?

For anyone who missed The War On Drugs’ highly entertaining Sportsnation live chat last week, you can read the transcript here
