KURT VILE

CONSTANT HITMAKER

WOODSIST


Format: LP
Cata No: WOODSIST024
Barcode: N/A
Philadelphian one-man band Kurt Vile kicks off this excellent record with a lo-fi pop anthem: 'Freeway' is a simple enough guitar & drum machine affair, but there's a raw, energetic romanticism that instantly taps into the tropes of great Americana songwriters, & the fact that this is all strung together in a punky, DIY setting only serves to make the record more effective & heartstring-tugging. Not all-out pop though: you'll find weird sketchy pieces that sound like the emissions of some far out supermarket synth drones, like some freakish combination of Ariel Pink & Atlas Sound. Thoroughly weird & unfocussed, but not without considerable pop melody...and structure. Imagine Bob Pollard and Lou Barlow losing their Lo-fi Crown(s) to this chap...its easy.
