New Music – Kurt Vile – Pretty Pimpin’

Kurt Vile

Kurt Vile has just released the first single ‘Pretty Pimpin’ off his upcoming album ‘b’lieve i’m goin down…’. The album will be out on September 25th on Matador Records.

As you’d expect the single is a laid back guitar song, with more than a hint of attitude! He’s also playing Vicar Street on November 15th, which slightly passed me by, but maybe it’s just announced! He’s impressive live, so worth picking up a ticket for this one.

b’lieve i’m goin down… is Vile’s sixth album, and shows Kurt both deeply introspective and briskly self-assured. As longtime fan Kim Gordon wrote about the album: “Kurt does his own myth-making; a boy/man with an old soul voice in the age of digital everything becoming something else, which is why this focused, brilliantly clear and seemingly candid record is a breath of fresh air. Recorded and mixed in a number of locations, including Los Angeles and Joshua tree, b’lieve i’m goin down… is a handshake across the country, east to west coast, thru the dustbowl history (“valley of ashes”) of woody honest strait forward talk Guthrie, and a cali canyon dead still nite floating in a nearly waterless landscape. The record is all air, weightless, bodyless, but grounded in convincing authenticity, in the best version of a singer songwriter upcycling.”
