Listen to Kurt Vile’s new playlist of inspirations & faves ++ win autographed vinyl & Webster Hall tix!
Kurt Vile recently released a new album, (watch my moves), which is his first for Verve, and he's on tour now. He gave us a playlist he made, that includes inspirations for the album as well as classics and new stuff that he's currently grooving to.
"Hey! This is a modern kv bangers playlist," Kurt tells us. "Modern as in this is a lot of what I been listenin to lately… Some are new faves from modern times, some are what I listened to whilst recording this album and some are nostalgic teleportation devices that take me right back. Right this sec the 90s feel like classic rock to me and I find I’m lovin goin back. (“I feel like goin back… back where there’s nowhere to stay.” -Neil Young) Touring with Chastity Belt has been amazing, fave modern band with 90s leanings. Sad it’s about to end. But lookin forward to linking up with Natural Information Society and Sun Ra Arkestra on the road next: Fave modern and classic jazz groups with outer space leanings. 'We can go to outer space whenever we want.' -Neil (again!) All those bands are in here… Yeah, it’s not just 90s music, it’s all over the place but actually no Neil Young included. Soundtrack to the kv road lately. Cuz yup Life has been a highway again. Woo! Love, kv"
