EDITORS’ NOTES

Kurt Vile’s hazy, introspective folk-rock somehow sounds more effortless with each album. Stripping back some of the layers and length of 2013’s gorgeously textured Wakin On a Pretty Daze, B'lieve I'm Goin Down... chronicles the low-key but disarmingly funny inner monologue of a seemingly ordinary dude—half Neil Young and half Winnie the Pooh. It starts with a long look in the bathroom mirror (“Pretty Pimpin”) and eventually makes it to the front door (“That’s Life, tho (almost hate to say)”), with some extraordinary insights along the way.

Another Great Kurt Vile Song

Waiting on a Pretty Daze is a terrific album (so was Smoke Ring) but if this song is any indication, we are in for a treat. Very catchy and easy to listen to. Kurt’s guitar playing is unique and his songs have a way of transporting the listener to another place. Looking forward to hearing the rest of the album and seeing Kurt on tour in Boston in October.

A new dynamic approach

Kurt's new album was an immediate buy, I enjoy the ballad sounding piano and the drumming on this one. Vile's lyrics are personal, visual, and take me for a ride in my mind.
