BARNETT, COURTNEY & KURT VILE
LOTTA SEA LICE
Matador
When we first heard wind of this collab between the most lazy seeming not lazy guy Kurt Vile & the energetic Aussie wordsmith Courtney Barnett the first thought was "Well duh, of course they should do an album together!" A meeting of minds like this COULD go really bad but it doesn't, in fact this is just as good as you'd probably hope for. Vile & Barnett's back & forths make perfect sense & their styles blend together effortlessly. With help from THE DIRTY THREE'S Jim White & Mick Turner & WARSAW's Stella Mozgawa & few others, Kurt & Courtney (how did we only notice this now!) have given as a true gift. RECOMMENDED.

VILE, KURT
BOTTLE IT IN
Matador
The reliable Kurt Vile keeps churnin' em out. On "Bottle it In" Kurt & the band seem to be drifting with many of the songs featuring lengthy guitar solos & Vile's now trademark stream of consciousness/totally chilled out lyrics that ramble on in that way we all love so much. The song "Pretty Pimpin'" from the previous album was a legit hit & perhaps he's pulled back a bit from that idea. That's not to say they're aren't "hits" here, it just doesn't seem to be the primary concern. Either way, Kurt Vile found a groove awhile back that he still seems to be comfortable floating in for awhile & we're fine with that. RECOMMENDED.

B'LIEVE I'M GOIN (DEEP) DOWN (3LP) (LTD. EDITION W/ INSERT OUT OF PRINT)
MATADOR
Over the past decade or so, Philadelphia's Kurt Vile has emerged as one of America's best & most prolific songwriters. Not too bad for a "slacker" eh? On "B'lieve I'm Goin Down", Vile continues to rise as a songwriter & his lyrics have never been more clever. There's A LOT less reverb on this record & the songs have a more direct feel with some heavily featured organ & even a little banjo. The last album "Wakin..." was pretty warm & summery but this one definitely has a more insular & slightly darker feel to it. Kurt keeps plowing ahead, hurtling through space & we're going to keep hanging on for the ride. RECOMMENDED. Limited edition "B'lieve I'm Goin (Deep) Down" 3LP version with 4 extra songs & some instrumentals of the album tracks, an extra gatefold-out & a poster. NOICE!

SMOKE RING FOR MY HALO (B&W COVER) (w/ DOWNLOAD)
Matador
There's no doubt that Philadelphia's Kurt Vile is a hard worker. Over the past few years he's released albums & singles consistently & it seems like he plays in Chicago every few months. "Smoke Ring for my Halo" is more restrained than "Childish Prodigy" & more closely resembles "Constant Hitmaker" with its lo-fi Neil Young-isms & fingerstyle playing. We're not saying that there aren't any rockers here, but the album does have an overall chill, stoner vibe. We're not surprised at all by Kurt's quick ascent & we can't wait to hear what he comes up with next.
