9/10 Brian Staff review, 27 May 2010

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 country-rock & psychedelia & textural exploration with a strong homespun porch-folk ethos. The 2nd song on here (comin' on like this awesome wallowing centrepiece) is fucking great - like Robert Pollard, early Smog & Jim O' Rourke.....this sauntering hypnotic odyssey that just spills with an easy-going attitude to cool guitar minimalism & remarkably trippy experimentation whilst keeping a beauty mellow groove trucking on. He can still do the sad-eyed folk troubadour, as displayed on the rustic lo-fi flip-side tracks. There's even a sleepy instrumental kosmische-like experiment on here that is quite charming.
