Slacker king Kurt Vile, aka ‘Philly’s Constant Hitmaker’, has been steadily growing his fanbase ever since breaking through with ‘B’lieve I’m Going Down’ in 2015. His deceptively easily digestible songs mask the intricate work of a talented songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer with a clear and consequent vision. This is a man who’s at the top of his game, without ever losing the joy of purely making and playing music.
Maybe that’s the exact secret behind a Kurt Vile song. It’s genius songwriting, despite sounding like it was made on a pretty hazy afternoon. It makes Vile’s music perfect for those weekends when you’ve already spent a lot of energy, with the sun shining on your face, and when nothing really matters except for his nonchalant charm, clever guitar play and indestructible songs. And then there’s always his backing band The Violators to give him and the audience the necessary energy boost. Exclusive concert!
