In a great video directed by Daniel Henry and shot for the new Kurt Vile song Pretty Pimpin. Vile moves away from the drone unstructured structure of Wakin on A Pretty Daze and gives us a free flowing song that swings along and makes Kurt sound new and invigorated.

Dan Henry told us that  “it was shot in LA and it was a complete blast”.

We had just seen him at the Citadel festival where most of the people didn’t quite know who they were listening to but were blown away by his great afternoon slot.

The new album b’lieve i’m goin down will be released on Matador in Septemebr. Kim Gordon who is a friend of Kurt’s said:
It’s a weird, accepting, mature record, acknowledging the inherent immaturity of being a person whether father, husband, partner, adult, musician, not perfect, but compelling for its understanding … that’s life though so sad to say… I love this record.
