[video] The War On Drugs - "A Needle In The Eye #16"

If you’re anything like me, you’re still really diggin’ The War On Drugs album Wagonwheel Blues - their debut which was released earlier this year by Secretly Canadian. That there’s the first video from the 9 song set. “A Needle In The Eye #16”, which TWOD kingpin Adam Granduciel told PHW in an interview was one of the last songs written for the record, sounds like one of those roadhouse songs from The River as done by 1970’s art punks Suicide. Vintage 60’s style clips demonstrate the vast difference between American and Native American cultures. Visually, it’s a strange couple of minutes, but the striking images fit the controlled chaos of the music. Stereogum had a great interview with Adam a few weeks ago, and they have “A Needle In Your Eye #16” for download there.
