Kurt Vile & The Violators
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Formerly best known for collaborating with Philadelphia noise-rockers The War On Drugs, Vile's brilliant last album 'Wakin on a Pretty Daze' has made him a major live draw in his own right. His lo-fi psychedelia and sunny, echo-sodden, eccentric folk-rock is something quite special, with a habit of hypnotically working over chord sequences over and over again while Vile lazily spools out his touching, down-home lyrics in a Dylanesque drawl. It's all cool as hell – and that's even before you find out that 'Kurt Vile' isn't even a stage name. Tonight he steps out with his long-standing backing band The Violators for a show in light of upcoming new album 'b’lieve i'm goin down', which is penciled in for an autumn release.
