KURT VILE – WAKIN ON A PRETTY DAZE (2013)

OLE-998 Kurt Vile-Walkin On A Pretty DazeKurt Vile is a dude. His band is called the Violators. He’s a slacker wise-ass with a stoner drawl. He’s married with daughters. Plus, he’s covered Downbound Train. How Boss is that?*

Walking on a Pretty Daze is his fourth full length and finest yet. Its a slow burner that rewards repeat listening. And then you realise thats all you’ve been doing for a month.

Walking is bookended with loping slow burners – the title track exhibiting slow build that unfolds intense layering and detail. It ends with Goldtone, which pretty much describes the thing. Highlights in the inbetween reveal themselves successively over time, KV Crimes, Shame Chamber, Air Bud.

Hear it for yourself. This ones a doozy.

*Wocka wocka.

    Hey we just saw this guy last week. He was pretty good – worthwhile making the effort for a midweek gig. Maybe a little bit samey though outside of the hits.
