Kurt Vile

On constant rotation on my stereo this week has been 'God Is Saying This To You' a 12" mini-lp by Kurt Vile (out on Mexican Summer Records), a compilation of tracks from 'Overnite KV', a tour-only CDR made in conjunction with a European tour of Vile's other project The War on Drugs, along with a handful of extra tracks recorded specifically for this release.

Less uptempo than both his solo debut album 'Constant Hitmaker' and his work with The War on Drugs, 'God Is Saying This To You' presents Vile as a skilled, highly individual singer/songwriter mixing elements of subtle psychedelia, bluesy guitar and organic lo-fi sonic experimentation; part Jandek, part Devendra, part Panda Bear, entirely fresh and entirely original.
