Slave Ambient is the second studio album by American indie rock band The War on Drugs, released on August 16, 2011, on Secretly Canadian. Recorded over three years, Slave Ambient is the final release to feature contributions from founding guitarist Kurt Vile and drummer Mike Zanghi, and the first to feature drummer Steven Urgo. The album was preceded by the EP, Future Weather, in 2010.

The lineup underwent several changes, and by the end of 2008, Kurt Vile, Charlie Hall, and Kyle Lloyd had all exited the group. At that time Granduciel and Hartley were joined by drummer Mike Zanghi, whom Granduciel also played with in Kurt Vile's backing band, the Violators. After recording much of the band's forthcoming studio album, Slave Ambient, Zanghi departed from the band in 2010. Drummer Steven Urgo subsequently joined the band, with keyboardist Robbie Bennett also joining at around this time  .

This is the least essential piece of The War on Drugs' catalog, and to make matters worse, the pressing is poor. Secretly Canadian is pretty reliable, but this is a miss. And better versions of many of these songs can be found on the Future Weather EP (although you might want to be careful with that pressing as well). Thankfully, the rest of the band's LPs sound terrific on vinyl. Reply Notify me Helpful. referencing Slave Ambient, 2x12", Album, SC190.

Granduciel has done it again, better than before: Slave Ambient, their proper second album, is a brilliant 47 minute sprawl of rock n roll, conceptualized with a sense of adventure and captured with seasons of bravado.

The War on Drugs frontman Adam Granduciel is all of these things on Slave Ambient, the Philly outfit's second full-length release. Given these professed feelings of restlessness and uneasiness, it's no surprise the band's hypno-roots-rock is all about forward motion and momentum, favoring steady, locomotive rhythms that rarely pause or waver - elements that reinforce Granduciel's efforts to make his problems disappear in the rearview mirror.

Slave Ambient is the second album from The War on Drugs. It’s the last album featuring founding guitarist Kurt Vile, before he left to pursue a solo career. Slave Ambient Q&A.
