Kurt Vile: il nuovo album

546

Ad un anno dalla collaborazione con Courtney Barnett e a tre dal suo ultimo ‘b’lieve i’m goin down’, Kurt Vile a metà agosto era ritornato con il singolo ‘Loading Zones‘. Un mese dopo l’annuncio: il nuovo album ‘Bottle It In’ sarà fuori via Matador il 12 ottobre. Nel dico figurano come ospiti anche Kim Gordon, Mary Lattimore, Cass McCombs, Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint), Holly Laessig e Jess Wolfe (Lucius). Il secondo pezzo in regalo ‘Bassackwards‘. Il terzo ‘One Trick Ponies‘.

Every song, whether it’s a concise and catchy pop composition or a sprawling guitar epic, becomes a journey unto itself, taking unexpected detours, circuitous melodic avenues, or open-highway solos. If Vile has become something of a rock guitar god—a mantle he would dismiss out of humility but also out of a desire to keep getting better, to continue absorbing new music, new sounds, new ideas—it’s due to his precise, witty playing style, which turns every riff and rhythm into points on a map and takes the scenic route from one to the next.
