12 Songs, 1 Hour 9 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Kurt Vile gets expansive on his fifth record in six years. On previous releases, he perfected the art of the concise, intimate psych-pop song; here, his beautiful, rambling, reverb-drenched electric melodies and textured, finger-picked acoustic runs circle but never settle, while his lyrics explore the minutiae of life, the little details that matter most to him. He creates a complete landscape, with most songs stretching beyond pop’s traditional three to four minutes to create a subtle, thoughtful world you’ll truly get lost in.

Most anticipated

Kurt Vile is one of those artists that you are proud to listen to, knowing that he is purely and truly original. Admittedly, I did not become a true fan until mid-2011, but thankfully, I heard Constant Hitmaker first, then the rest of his albums in succession, giving me as similar an experience as his other true fans experienced as they followed his career. Now I am up to date, have seen him play live at Maxwell's in NJ and opening for Dinosaur Jr, and am very much looking forward to the new album coming in April 2013, in addition to 3 live east coast shows in May. This 9-minute ditty goes by so fast and makes you realize how talented Kurt really is, bringing you in and making you get lost, willfully, in this song, both musically and lyrically. Enjoy, and see him live if you get the chance.

The Summer of 2013 Album

This is the album to listen to when you want to chill out and have a few beers with friends. It makes you feel relaxed and calm when you listen to it. This is Kurt Vile's best album yet and his songwriting on here is top notch. If you like quality rock and roll that has a 60s vintage rock vibe to it then this album is for you. Kurt seems like a really nice guy and he shared this masterpiece with us all. Buy it!
