Get To Know Kurt Vile

Aside from being a member of The War On Drugs, Kurt Vile is also quite the accomplished solo musician. Matador recently signed him and will be releasing his latest LP Childish Prodigy on October 6th.

The Matablog has been getting everyone psyched about the record by posting new videos all week. Here's a recent interview Kurt gave where he discusses the honor of being on a celebrated label, the Philly music scene and how his new offering of songs differs from his more lo-fi work in the past:

Live performance of new song "Hunchback":


"Hunchback" (studio version)

"Overnite Religion"

Pre-order Childish Prodigy and receive the "He's All Right" 7" as a nice bonus.

It's also recommended that you pick up Constant Hitmaker released on Woodsist.
