Kurt Vile

Kurt Vile
It’s a big world out there (and I am scared) EP

This EP is the companion CD to Vile's excellent album from April, Walking On A Pretty Daze.  Like the album you get smart, quiet, contemplative lyrics about life. His singing is equally fine and as for his guitar playing, I could sit and listen to him for hours.  This EP is as good as the album.

Vile is a hero in Philadelphia, with an official day named after him in August. And since I’m from Philly, this is also a chance for me to say that Philly has a great indie rock scene, and Vile is one of its finest ambassadors.  It’s no accident that Walking is on many top ten lists.  It will be on mine, along with this EP.
