Ahh, it's called 'The Creature', and it's great. http://bit.ly/ozOAMA
Does anyone in the UK like Kurt Vile?
Never heard of him till I saw his set at the End Of The Road last weekend - will be purchasing and listening to his CDs soon
and going to see him in london @ the scala tonight. a peach of a songwriter
to sell for this. would love to see him again but i'm ill.
£20 for the pair. it's a pick up at the venue deal but i can forward all the confirmation info.
Booked it to mainly see WOODS but am very interested to hear what he's like too. Only heard one or two tracks by him recently. My chum at work thought he was amazing at EOTR.
for him to be playing without the band. My favourite stuff of his is the more stripped down, one-man material - Childish Prodigy and the stuff on Ten Songs. he was excellent at the brief opening slot for panda bear last year. i actually wasn't feeling the recent album as much, but i'm sure he'll be very good tonight.
the idea of him covering Downbound Train excites me more than a little bit
musically they did a good job of recreating the textures on the album, but he wasn't singing that well. He seemed really nervous though, so that might have something to do with it
I reeeally unfortunately missed his show with Woods a month back, and it's the biggest regret of my summer, without a doubt. Might still buy a bootleg of the show. Woods was unreal, from what I heard. Enjoy the show!
kurt vile really only works on records (or in a really small venue). the music is all wishy washy and doesn't translate live to a large audience really. the fact that he mostly stares at his feet and mumbles his lyrics doesn't really help either. a performer with no desire to communicate doesn't really interest me that much.
It was my first time of seeing them so hearing songs from the marvellous Echo Lake album was pretty special. Very nice sound. The friend I was with said they were a lot better at EOTR, and said they had a member missing last night. Spoke to the singer after who seemed really cool (got him to sign a book of his art work I just so happened to have in my bag).
Wandered off to the upstairs bar for a drink and then downstairs was too packed by time Kurt Vile came on. He sounded good but didn't give it my full attention. Happy to have just seen Woods tbh.
The War on Drugs album is rather excellent (his old band of sorts)
and they are playing cargo on tuesday (although i think its sold out).
does need a boost in confidence though
