Kurt Vile Life

Kurt Samuel Vile (born January 3, 1980) is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer.

He is best known for his solo work and as the former lead guitarist of the rock band The War on Drugs.

Both in the studio and live performances, Vile is accompanied by his backing band, The Violators, which now includes Jesse Trbovich (bass, guitar, saxophone), Rob Laakso (guitar, bass), and Kyle Spence (drums). Vile's influence was first demonstrated by Pavement, Neil Young, Tom Petty, and John Fahey. In Philadelphia, he began producing lo-fi home recordings with frequent collaborator Adam Granduciel, with whom he has collaborated in early work for The War on Drugs as well as several solo projects.

Vile's solo career brought two albums, Constant Hitmaker (2008) and God Is Saying This to You (2009), compiling various home recordings dating back to 2003.

Vile signed to Matador Records in 2009 and then released Childish Prodigy, his third album, in the same year.

The album was his first recorded in a studio and with full participation of The Violators. Vile's fourth studio album, Smoke Ring for My Halo, debuted in 2011, greatly raising his profile.

Wakin on a Pretty Daze, his fifth studio album, was released in 2013, with Laakso replacing Granduciel in his backing band.

Vile's sixth studio album, b'lieve I'm gonein down, was released in 2015. "Pretty Pimpin," Vile's best performing song to date, debuted on the Billboard Adult Alternative Songs chart in March 2016.

Lotta Sea Lice, the Australian singer and guitarist, has collaborated with Australian singer and guitarist Courtney Barnett on a project for 2017 in which they collaborated.

Bottle It In is his latest album, and it was released on October 12, 2018.


Miss Grit Isn't A Cyborg, But That's OK

www.mtv.com, February 21, 2023
It's easy to forget that the cyborg — AI's distant cousin — has existed in the human imagination for more than six decades. The prospect of partially human, partially mechatronic beings has captured artists and culture commentators alike, resulting in a number of seminal works since 1960, when Manfred Clynes and Nathan Kline first coined the term in an Astronautics paper. The list continues to expand as Donna Haraway's 1985 feminist essay "A Cyborg Manifesto" Spike Jonze's 2013 film Her, Japanese writer Chiaki J. Konaka's 1998 anime film Serial Experiments Lain. Miss Grit's debut album, Follow the Cyborg, was inspired by these and many other works about bionic people. Miss Grit, a British woman, tells MTV News, they were attracted to the automaton for its liberatory functions: it is often depicted as free from outside influences and aspirations.

GREG ALLAN, a music critic and 'uncool dad,' presents his must-listen albums for 2022

This is the third time I've seen one of my Facebook 'best of' music lists published outside of Facebook's social media page, which is exciting for me. My run is a little late this year, but I don't want to disappoint my readers here at the Daily Mail. One of the bands reached out to me after a slew of reader comments from last year's list, which was...cool. I've decided to imbue this piece with a 2023 feel and give you all a look ahead in the world of music this year.

It's impossible to find the ever-elusive "bop" in a search. Playlists and streaming-service recommendations can only do so much. They often leave a lingering question: Are these songs really good, or are they just new? Enter Bop Shop, a hand-picked collection of songs from MTV News' staff. This weekly collection doesn't discriminate by genre and can include anything; it's a glimpse at what's on our minds and what looks good. We'll keep it fresh with the new music, but we'll still get a few oldies (but goodies) every once in a while. Get ready: The Bop Shop is now open for business.
