Kurt Vile & Steve Gunn
Gunn Vile

This was initially released in limited quantities as part of Three Lobed's Parallelogram series but has since received a deserved wider release. The two musicians combine perfectly on songs by the likes of John Prine, Randy Newman and Nico, each bringing their distinct qualities to the plat...view item »

Kurt Vile
God Is Saying This To You

If you know Kurt Vile than you know what to expect. Beautiful, dark, haunting songs primarily made up of acoustic guitar and vocals. If you don't already know, Kurt can play. He has a brilliant fingerpicking style and a hauntingly honest tongue. The highest point on this album for me is "My Sympathy". This is a really good record that has altern...view item »

Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile
Lotta Sea Lice

Though they have a lot of hair in common this collaboration would have been hard to predict yet these two songwriters voices intertwine rather well. Neither opens their mouth properly so they both co-drawl over some rather lovely folk rock. Mick Harvey, Warpaint and Dirty Three folk help keep ev...view item »

Kurt Vile
Square Shells EP

I struggle with these retro-tastic singer songwriter types yer know. Not always sure about this guy but when I came in the office a few months ago only to hear these wonderful, hazy songs swaggering out of the stereo, I somehow knew it was Kurt Vile. He's got that....something. He's also got a clever way with a tune that sort of mashes up countr...view item »

Kurt Vile
b’lieve i'm goin down…

b’lieve i’m goin down… is album number six from troubadour Kurt Vile. What he has for us is a rich new collection of twelve songs, a kind of country-indie-rock that Vile is obviously extremely comfortable making. CD and 2LP editions, and also available as a triple-LP with six extra tr...view item »

Sore Eros & Kurt Vile
Jamaica Plain

This Sore Eros & Kurt Vile 10" comes in an uncommonly thick green card sleeve with the artwork screenprinted on it, dead classy. On side A there's the lengthy 'Jamaica Plain', a twinkly guitar instrumental that makes you think of beach sunsets and long, muggy summer nights. The two guitars are eventually joined by some understated drums and ...view item »

Wakin On A Pretty Daze: Deluxe Daze (Post Haze)

Titled the Deluxe Daze (Post Haze), Kurt Vile releases a 69 minute album packed with impressive, ambitious and explorative songs. Vile seeks a sound both intimate and forward looking in nature, which accompanied by the equally fascinating artwork of Steve Powers, creates a stunning record. This is an artist at the top of his game. ...view item »

Kurt Vile
Wakin On A Pretty Daze

I learned something today. I learned that Kurt Vile is not a pseudonym but in fact the actual name of popular singer and songwriter Kurt Vile. I know! Me neither! Anyway, Mr Vile’s got a new album out this week and he wants me to tell you about it. It’s called ‘Wakin’ On A Pretty Daze&rsq...view item »

Kurt Vile
He's Alright

In addition to the plaudits he has won for the quality of his punning, Kurt Vile was named the winner of The Great Woodsist Race 2009 - his prize being a multi-million dollar Matador recording contract and a date with Cat Power (try to keep her off the shandies, Kurt). I haven't heard his debut LP with the big boys but Business Lady reckons it's re...view item »

Kurt Vile
Childish Prodigy

Kurt Vile has signed to Matador!!! What a bad ass!!! Ok, Vile put out an awesome record earlier in the year on Woodsist which i thought was mint-os. Now he's kicking it with the big boys and it shows. 'Childish Prodigy' sounds both ambitious and energized whilst maintaining a lo-fi sensibilities. The tracks presented here cover a spectrum of influe...view item »

Kurt Vile
Constant Hitmaker

The name Kurt Vile had me expecting some sort of Weimar-inflected noisefest but the title Constant Hitmaker doesn't. Unless it's playing some sort of clever bait and switch like the ultra cute cover of that newest Merzbow Japanese birds thing that's out soon. Which it isn't. It's poppy! Singer-songwritery pop-folk-rock with a bit of that characteri...view item »

Kurt Vile/Jack Rose/Meg Baird/US Girls
Meet the Philly Elite

I was so excited about this 'Meet The Philly Elite' 7" which arrived the other day from KRAAK. We got their last copies and most of 'em have gone now so be quick if you're thinking about it. Kraak love Philadelphia and the music scene so much there they knocked up this ace all star cast 7" full of the lovely folks of Philly. You got Kurt ...view item »

Kurt Vile
Smoke Ring For My Halo

Celebration time kids. It's time for a new Kurt Vile rekkid! Upping the ante significantly since his last outing on Matador ('Childish Prodigy') 'Smoke Ring For My Halo' is chocker with instantly enjoyable material. This is only my second spin of the LP and I already feel very much at home with the music presented here. Vile's sound brings t...view item »

Kurt Vile
In My Time

Kurt Vile is an interesting guy. He has weaved a way through the mine strewn battlefield that is life with just a guitar, a box of cereal and two copies of What Car? magazine. He is a festival circuit regular and he got his big break playing Leroy in "Fame". I quite like Mr Vile and his records are usually sweet. He reminds me of a less nasal Ne...view item »
