It’s been an epic year for Kurt Vile: from the universally loved release of Wakin On A Pretty Daze, to the late night television debuts, seemingly endless touring & the innagural Kurt Vile Day. Dubbed the Deluxe Daze (Post Haze) version of the release of this deluxe CD caps out this banner year as Kurt Vile is quickly but quietly becoming one of the great American guitarists and songwriters of our time.
The 69-minute album, comprised of sweeping, expansive songs that are both very intimate and conversational hits shelves repackaged with new Steve Powers (ESPO) artwork and a bonus EP entitled “it’s a big world out there (and i am scared)” .
The second disc includes a fleshed out “synth string” version of “Never Run Away” and two brand new tracks: the fingerpicked earworm “Feel My Pain” and the bedroom psych moves of “The Ghost of Freddie Roach”. Wakin standouts “Snowflakes Are Dancing” and “Air Bud” are also reprised here as “Snowflakes Extended” and “Wedding Budz”, respectively.
Wakin On A Pretty Daze is a timeless record that would have sounded great 30 years ago, sounds great today, and will still sound great in another 30 years from now.

Stolen glances, forgiven memories and moments of joy are the backdrop of Ed Askew’s wonderful album “For The World”. The record is as considered and reserved is it is full of experience, like discovering a quiet green park in the middle of a busy city. Delicate piano, guitar, banjo and harp mix with Ed’s harmonica and politely support his words as someone who can reflect on chances and choices by way of New York observations and imagined scenes. “For The World” is an articulate album, an elegant album, but foremost it is an honest album.
If listening to Indianapolis-based Lily & Madeleine gives you a vague sense of deja-vu, you’re not alone – it’s nearly impossible not to compare them to Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit. 16-year-old Lily and 18-year-old Madeleine Jurkiewicz are sisters, just like First Aid Kit’s Johanna and Klara Söderberg, but the connection runs deeper than […]
Multipurpose Trap is the follow-up to “Bantam to Behemoth” (2008). These nine tracks, mostly instrumental, but each with some vocals, are just as intense and complex as ever. Recommended if You Like: Gentle Giant King Crimson Magma mp3 320 kbps | 389 MB | UL
