Kurt Vile

So, so good. Contender for one of the best albums of the year.

No joke. “Shame Chamber” is one of the best songs I’ve heard so far this year. Yeah, I know it’s only April.

    1. You know, it’s like J Mascis decided to smoke some weed, listen to some Tom Petty, and be backed by a punk band from Philly. It’s got the vibe of a classic rock record from the 70s, but done up all jangly with lots of Bad Stone phase and Fender Jags. Jean jackets with the smokes sticking out of the pocket. The punks became poignant and named their leader Kurt Vile.

      All hail Kurt Vile!

  1. Yeah! I “discovered” him about a year ago or so, and I haven’t heard very much from him, yet. But I dig him. He is a fantastic songwriter with a great sound. Good pick!
