Released:
Label: Matador
Much like Neil Young and Crazy Horse, who has to be a hero for sure, Kurt Vile and his unique brand of shoegaze roots-rock is far heavier in the live setting than on record. Recorded in the spring of 2011, at Rhapsody's annual party in Austin, Tex., this three-song EP is shambolic, raw and loud. The twang-fried "Hunchback" is from the 2009 album Childish Prodigy, while "On Tour" and "Ghost Town," both of which are significantly more meditative and spacey, can be found on the follow-up, 2011's Smoke Ring For My Halo.
