Alternative Folk musician Kurt Vile has released a whole lot of songs in the past ten years. His latest album Believe I’m Goin Down is like the rest of his repertoire a pleasant 12-song art piece containing hyponotic guitar licks and laid back vocal tracks. The former War on Drugs guitarist is set to tour around Europe and the US this summer.
Belive I’m Goin’ Down – Pretty Pimpin
Kurt Vile I’m Goin Down… is his sixth studio album which was released on September 25, 2015 on Matador Records.
The opening song “Pretty Pimpin” symbolises the unknown feeling of being at a certain point in life when everything doesn’t play like you wanted it to. Add to that some amazing hypnotic, head spinning guitar riffs and Rhythm vocals. this song is a slowtrain which easily could be on repeat for hours.
All he ever wanted was to be someone in life that was just like
All I want is to just have fun, live my life like a son of a gun
I could be one thousand miles away but still mean what I say
Kurt Vile – I’m An Outlaw and Dust Bunnies
Other Songs on Believe I’m Goin Down are also worth listening. “I’m An Outlaw” , “Dust Bunnies” all feature some southern grooves. “Lost In My Head There” is in my opinion the most creative song on this album containing abstract grooves and really, really laid back vocals.
Don’t Forget to watch the Video of ‘”Pretty Pimpin” which is worth watching. Directed by Daniel Henry,
