Kurt Vile is arguably the best conversationalist musician around. Unsure if that’s a term, but it should be. Kurt has the ability to make you feel like you’re lying on his couch the morning after a house party you both went to, verbally dissecting the night. You start talking about how wasted that guy Blake was, or how phony Jess has become, and before you know it you’re waxing poetic about the meaning of life. Pretty sure that’s exactly how the track ‘That’s life, tho’ came about. Kurt is like a pothead therapist—quiet, intuitive, philosophical and always high. If you like Kurt Vile: good news. You’re gonna love this album.
b’lieve i’m goin down… drops Sept 25 via Matador Records.
