Kurt Vile tells us his Top 10 of 2016 ++ win tix to his Terminal 5 show with Woods

Though Kurt Vile didn’t release a record in 2016, you can’t say he took it easy (though he always takes it easy), as he was busy touring, and guesting on records by Luke Roberts, Hope Sandoval & The Warm Intentions, the National’s massive Grateful Dead tribute, lending his voice to HBO series Animals, and more. Kurt is one of the many artists to give us his Top 10 of 2016, which includes some past collaborators (Luke Roberts, Dinosaur Jr), some of his favorite songs, people and more. Check out Kurt’s list below.

You can catch Kurt Vile on TV later this month, and in NYC on December 28 at Terminal 5 with Woods and Nathan Bowles. Tickets are still available but if you’d like to go for free we’re giving a pair away.
