Featured Release This Week From Kurt Vile + Tracks Top 30 Playlist

Nov 5, 2018

Philadelphia musician, vocalist and songwriter Kurt Vile was once in the band The War On Drugs, but he's more likely to be known these days for collaborating with Courtney Barnett.  That, plus his solo albums; Bottle It In is Vile's seventh studio release.  It's entirely fitting that Vile opened for Neil Young a while back, playing for 90,000 people in Quebec.  He's kind of a Neil-of-the-mid-70's type figure for the 21st century.  Like Young, Kurt Vile takes inspiration from Americana in its many forms, including country music.  He does a nice version of "Rolling With The Flow" for the only cover song on Bottle It In.  And on planes, Vile says "For a while I was terrified of flying, so I would be listening to whatever country songs I was obsessed with.  I'd have George Jones blasting in my ears."
