Kurt Vile

New Track: "Feel My Pain" - Kurt Vile

Kurt Vile is releasing Deluxe Daze (Post Haze), a deluxe edition of  his latest LP Wakin on a Pretty Daze that will be accompanied by a new EP entitled it's a big world out there (and i'm scared). Both the deluxe edition and EP will be available on November 19 via Matador. There will also be a limited number of it's a big world out there (and i'm scared) on red vinyl at his Union Transfer show on Saturday, October 26. You can listen to the track "Feel My Pain" from the EP HERE, and read what Vile had to say about the song below.

This track was recorded during the first cluster of sessions at Dreamland Studios, May 2012. (same sessions that conjured up most of album opener "wakin on a pretty day" I should add!)

"Feel My Pain" is a particularly meticulous guitar composition that i remember playing over and over back when writing it and then even more so when i had finished it, sort-of possessed.

We added a lot to this later only to strip it back again favoring the raw to the chamber-pop this go 'round. Spectral arrangement and a mellow-ominous delivery (if such a thing is possible)...


New Track: "Serum" - Sore Eros & Kurt Vile

Below is a new track called "Serum" from Kurt Vile's collaboration with longtime pal Robert Robinson, a.k.a. Sore Eros. It will appear on a three-song EP entitled Jamaica Plain that was actually recorded ten years ago when the two first met and just recently surfaced. The record will be released digitally and on 10" vinyl on November 4 via Care In The Community Recordings. Vile will be playing Philly next when he headlines Union Transfer on Staurday, October 26.


New Video: "Kurt Vile Day" + "Wakin On A Pretty Day" - Kurt Vile

In case the rain kept you from making it out to City Hall for "Kurt Vile Day," here's a video of Vile of receiving the Liberty Award and performing "Wakin On A Pretty Day." (Where was Mayor Nutter for the presentation? We guess that he was busy figuring out how to sell off the future of Philly's underprivileged children.) Special thanks to Bob Sweeney for sharing. Enjoy!
