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]
