Kurt Vile is a recent discovery. He’s a great songwriter despite his youth — he has an old soul. His music is described best by his record company:
“The music is quiet and the melody, like a hymn, folds in on itself, and embraces full strength in a sexy, floating forcelessness that slowly gathers into a wave that doesn’t go where you think it will or rather gives in to itself…”
Not only that, but he reminds me of my late brother Tom when he was young.
