KURT VILE is the nom de plume of Philadelphian KURT VILE (!) whose shimmering home recordings reflect the artists admiration of everything from delta blues to the minimalist agro of Suicide, the downer psyche of 39 Clocks as well as the skiffle hum of Strapping Fieldhands. In other words, a real globe trotter. Kurt has shared bills - as well as wiped the floor - with the likes of Blues Control, Pink Reason, Clock Cleaner, Times New Viking, Magik Markers, to name a few. Lend him your ears.
