listen to Kurt Vile’s new album, ‘Wakin On A Pretty Daze’
Kurt Vile at Sasquatch 2012 (more by Chris Graham & Rae Graham)
Kurt Vile, whose tour brings him to NYC for a "Meet The Musician" talk/performance at Apple Store SoHo on April 9 and a sold out Bowery Ballroom show on May 16, has put his new album, Wakin On A Pretty Daze, up for streaming a week ahead of its April 9 release date. The new album takes Kurt's effortless drawl and summer breeze guitar strums of 2011's Smoke Ring For My Halo and expands them with extended segues and guitar and solos into an 11-track, hour-plus double album, some of which near or pass the 8-minute mark. It's a great album, and you can listen to the entire thing at NPR.
All dates are listed, along with streams of the album's two singles, below...
Kurt Vile - "Wakin On A Pretty Day"
Kurt Vile - "Never Run Away"
