It was always the name that got me. Kurt Vile. Got to be a punk, thrash metal guy right?
Turns out Kurt became a truly great singer/songwriter.
The voice is blue-collar but the songs and the way he sings them are unlike 99.9 % of the others.
He’s gone through the band phase with The War on Drugs. Then launched his solo career with a band of misfits called The Violators. Nice misfits mind you.
Dude has released a handful of albums and 18 EPS.
The latest is Sound, Speed, Lonely KV (EP)
It begins with a John Prine song and the second to last track is also a John Prine song, .WITH John Prine.
Enjoy the stories and the man.
