Following the one year anniversary of Kurt Vile’s eighth solo studio album, Bottle It In (Matador Records), the singer just announced his first solo tour in 10 years, with support from the beautifully fascinating baroque-pop rock lade, Cate Le Bon. What a damn delight of a partnership. Bottle It In features Vile-typical tunes laced with those clever lines and quirky energy but with a bit more sophistication than previous albums. Ahead of the tour, Vile released Bottle Back, a short documentary film directed by Ryan Scott, which features lovely behind-the-scenes moments shot up in the Catskills. Check out this tasty sampler and listen to Vile on vinyl or the digital places. Extra props to “Rollin with the Flow.”
The complete list of Kurt Vile’s spring tour dates in support of Bottle It In can be found on his website.
