The War On Drugs, "Red Eyes"

As I have no musical training I lack the formal vocabulary with which to adequately discuss the kind of beat that carries songs like this along, but I can very definitely say that it is a sound I rather enjoy, signifying as it does both propulsion and possibility. It is difficult to know with music—with anything, really, but music in particular—if these feelings are subjective or universal, so give this one a listen and see if you don’t nod along. [Via]
