Kurt Vile’s “Puppet To The Man”

23 May

So of course the new tUnE-yArDs and Panda Bear albums are pretty great and everything, but the album that’s really held my attention for the past couple months is Kurt Vile‘s Smoke Ring for My Halo. There’s something really enchanting about the album’s almost paradoxical aesthetic: it’s beautiful and richly detailed but at the same time it comes off as so effortless it’s almost lazy. Think old REM meets the Modern Lovers. My favorite track off the album, “Puppet To The Man,” is posted below; I hope you enjoy the slacker groove and Vile’s wry sense of humor as much as I do. He’ll be at the Troubadour with Thurston Moore on July 28 and 29 if you’re interested. – Dominick
