Kurt Vile
Kurt Vile
has just released his brilliant 4th album called Smoke Ring for My Halo. I am obsessed. He released his 3rd album and his 1st for Matador about a year and a half ago, in October of 2009 and somehow it just passed me by. I just had to go back and see if I even mentioned it in my blog, and I only briefly did but I never got around to really giving it the time it deserved. That album is called Childish Prodigy. I really wish I could go back in time and fall in love with it right there and then but there was a lot going on that week to distract me! The new album from A Place To Bury Strangers had just come out, and new Dead Man's Bones and Gossip albums had just come out as well. I was busy! So when I first heard about the new Kurt Vile album, I really was not that excited and I didn't know what to expect. I had heard some good things about him -- I knew my friend Zack was obsessed, but I really had no idea what he sounded like. From the look of him, I expected him to sound like Andrew WK or Jay Reatard. Kurt Vile I had no idea he would sound more like Mark Kozelek or Jose Gonzalez. He is sort of a combination of all your favorite folk musicians: Leonard Cohen, Neil Young, Bert Jansch, and Fairport Convention. I was pleasantly surprised when I first heard Smoke Ring for My Halo. I had absolutely no idea that this would be one of my favorite albums of the year!

Kurt Vile at Rickshaw Stop in SF Tonight

The
show to be at tonight in the Bay Area is Matador's own Kurt Vile at the Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco. The guy is unstoppably good! Is it wrong to label his songs "bouncy?" They feel somehow bouncy to me... and have beautiful guitar work too. If you aren't in SF, over the next few weeks Kurt will continue his tour down through the South and back up to his hometown, Philly. Check out some songs and dates below.
