New Kurt Vile LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Bottle It In, the new full-length album from Kurt Vile, is out now via Matador Records. The songs gently roll down a melodic, slow-burning trajectory - one that feels loose and at ease, yet has the sneaky sense of precision. Sink into those conversational drawls, which accompany Vile's intricate guitarwork and grooves. You can find Kurt and The Violators headlining The Met Philly on Saturday, December 29 with The Feelies.

Weekend Warrior, December 30 - January 1

A new year represents aesthetically a clean slate, the chance to turn the page and let the past whether, recent or not, behind. Of course, the past may also hold cherished memories that one wishes to carry into the future. Either way, Saturday night serves as an opportunity to celebrate, for some, the year that was and for others the year that one hopes 2017 will be.
 
Now, my first instinct when I enter any environment is to look and listen; if there’s music, that’s typically a solid forecaster of good fortune. With that criteria, here are a few places one should consider spending the last hours of a trying 2016. 
 
The high-octane ragged barrelhouse blues of TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb will be headlining Boot & Saddle, paired with the earnest Americana of Levee Drivers, and the playfully bizarre, eclectic Mercury Radio Theater. If funky R&B and soul are your aspirations, Underground Arts is the destination. The brass beacon of Balkan beats, known as West Philadelphia Orchestra, and the retrograde soul-funk engine of Johnny Showcase once again come together for sweaty, good time. And channeling the silky authoritative dance-inducing vibes of Byrne & Bowie, MINKA enters the fray, which also starts with the funky instrumental slices of Muscle Tough.
 
The spellbinding folk-psych of Kurt Vile brings his mellow/mercury-spiking spectrum to The Fillmore, where he’ll be joined by psych-folk outfit Woods and Nathan Bowles. Ortlieb’s will host the mobile-layered, grooving, melodic sojourn of Mo Lowda & The Humble, as well as the atmosphere-altering, future-traversing experimentation of Air is Human, and a DJ set from Suburban Living, who will be pulling double duty that evening performing at Franklin Hall with Vacationer and CRUISR. BTW: Speaking of DJ sets, Lushlife will also be occupying the decks at Johnny Brenda’s.
 
Wherever you’re headed, embrace the joy and stay safe. - Michael Colavita

New Video: "Wakin On A Pretty Day" (Christmas Version) - Heavenly Chorus (Feat. Kurt Vile)

Kurt Vile stopped by the Public Theater in NYC for a taping of Joe's Pub Presents: A Holiday Special. Leading a "heavenly chorus" that also included Lisa Loeb, Bridgett Everett, and event host Tony Hale, the motley crew got in the holiday spirit with an improvised Christmas rendition of "Wakin On A Pretty Day". Now, we're not sure if you'll hear this version at his upcoming New Year's Eve concert this Saturday at The Fillmore Philly with Woods and Nathan Bowles, but Vile will definitely be pulling out some fan favorites for the hometown crowd.
