9/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 01 October 2009
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 influences from country tinged rock, folk and Delta Blues with hints of an appreciation for new wave post punk bands like the Modern Lovers, Magazine and Suicide. The production is incredibly sympathetic to his style and brings out the best in the tracks where required. I single guitar and vocal is augmented in various ways using synths, percussion, mountains of tape reverb and the occasional full backing band with drums and everything. Kurt's voice has enduring qualities and i'm digging his Dylan-esque chatty, poetic style. It's incredibly rare to hear any interesting voices in modern rock let alone someone who writes decent lyrics, i won't start quoting as this ain't the NME and i haven't got all day to witter on about the in's and out's of each record i review. All you need to know is that Kurt Vile is emerging and worthy artist that deserves your attention, even if it's just enough to check out a couple of sound clips or listen to few tracks on myspace.....I don't think you'll be disappointed. I'm loving this record especially the rhythmically strong 'Freak Train'....ace.
