[mp3] Kurt Vile - "Overnight Religion"

I think they think it’s the Summer of Love over there at Matador. So far this month has seen a constant stream of excellent new tunes from the label, several of which you can find simply by scrolling down right now, and today is no different. Kurt Vile, he of side duties in The War On Drugs and the solo album Constant Hitmaker from 2008, has been riding a wave of critical goodwill so far this year. It seemed that everyone finally caught up to him when “Freeway” started going around back in March/April, and the attention no doubt helped land him a deal with Matador. Childish Prodigy will be his first full length release for the label, due October 6, and “Overnight Religion” continues the hazy, ethereal folk-rock vibe that Vile has been such a part of (on last year’s Wagonwheel Blues and his own solo stuff) in the past. It’s an arresting, hypnotic track that sort of demands repeat plays to fully sink in, but when it does get ready - you may find yourself listening over and over, getting lost in the song’s looping sense of weightlessness.

Prior to Childish Prodigy’s release, Matador is planning a 7” single, due September 8, featuring album track “He’s Alright” backed by 2 non-album cuts.
