Another step on the journey of Kurt Vile feels just right for his style. Reminiscent of Tom Petty in many ways, bright and full, but still with his lofty and out-there lyrical tendencies and edge. Great fall vibes for the established Kurt Vile fan. Nothing quite as catchy as Pretty Pimpin from his previous release, but still deepens Vile’s catalog effectively. Track 3 even harkens back, distantly, to his days with the War on Drugs.
