Kurt Vile

Kurt Vile's been doing some shows with J. Mascis lately, one of them in Brattleboro, which is close, but I didn't go. From what I hear, it was mostly acoustic, but J. got off the stool a couple of times to do some Dinosaur tunes...and also, from what I hear, Kurt Vile was in quiet, jangly mode, but still pretty riveting.

Anyway, there's a new folky, acoustic KV album out now on Matador called Smoke Ring For My Halo, which I have been enjoying (but I like the full-band stuff better). Here's "Jesus Fever".

And here are the two of them doing "Make It Right" in Philly, which is Vile's hometown.
