Kurt Vile and his band ‘The Violators’ have confirmed a stop-off in Berlin this December – full details and tickets here. Formerly of ‘The War on Drugs’, Vile (33) is now a fully fledged solo artist.
His fourth studio LP ‘Smoke Ring for my Halo’ was released to critical acclaim in 2011, significantly raising his profile. His fifth – this year’s ‘Wakin on Pretty Daze’ served to cement his distinctive vocal/guitar style across the globe. It’s both hypnotic and effortless with ‘The Violators’ more prominent than ever before. The Deluxe edition was released last week and includes a new EP ‘It’s a Big World Out There (And I Am scared)’…. You can buy it here.
So if you feel like checking out one of the best male hair-styles since Ronaldo’s tuft – the show’s @ Lido, Berlin on Dec 9th. It’s a no-brainer. I mean he even has his own day on August 28th Kurt Vile Day.
‘Have you ever buried your nose in a mountain of curls?’.
