New Kurt Vile LP out, Vile plays Conan
The new Kurt Vile album (b'lieve i'm goin' down) is out today via Matador, and first spins showcase an album full of Vile's penchant for finger-picked crystalline lazy Sunday jams mixed with moments of spine-tingling anthemic bliss. He stopped by Conan O'Brien's show to play the first single ("Pretty Pimpin'") and do a stripped down version of "Wild Imagination". This iteration of Vile's band appears to be loaded for bear, featuring (amongst others) Farmer Dave Scher (Beachwood Sparks) on keys and backing vocals.
Kurt Vile plays the Showbox in Seattle with Cass McCombs on October 18, 2015.
