Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Tuesday Tracks: The War on Drugs

Posted By on Tue, Jul 15, 2014 at 4:28 PM

Ok...so maybe I'm late to catch on to this one, but I'm calling this Tuesday Tracks my ode to Philadelphia. The War On Drugs has been scuffling around the Philly music scene since 2005 and released their most recent album, Lost In The Dream back in March of 2014.

Regardless of timing, the album is good. Really good. The War On Drugs sounds like some strange mix of Tears for Fears, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan with a healthy dose of Kurt Vile's ambient experimentalism. Vile helped found the band with singer and guitarist Adam Granduciel back in '05, but moved on to focus on an equally kick ass solo career soon after. Lost InThe Dream is a sleeper of an album (ha! get it?) that only gets better with every listen. 
While you're here...check out one of my favorite tracks from last summer, Kurt Vile's "Walkin on a Pretty Day."
