Kurt Vile is a Lot Sweeter Than His Name Would Suggest

When I first heard Kurt’s Vile’s album, Smoke Rings For My Halo, I was so expecting something vile.  I was almost disappointed, so I hardly even heard it.

I went back and listened though, and I’m glad I did.  This is some really passionate, low-key Rock n’ Roll that makes Kurt sound like some kind of veteran.  Like, he already got famous and this is an album he did years later.

Not really though, Kurt’s still an up-and-comer, and I’m about to listen to his other three albums, cause he has my attention.

I’m listening to Puppet To The Man:
