In support of his new record b’lieve i’m goin’ down…, Kurt Vile will be heading our way over the Summer to play Falls/Southbound Festival plus a string of massive headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne.
Kurt Vile and The Vialotors will be playing Melbourne’s Forum Theatre – with some incredible handpicked supports in the form of Twerps and Scott And Charlene’s Wedding – and the Sydney Opera House in early January. Tickets are on sale now via Ticketmaster for Melbourne. Sydney goes on sale next Thursday via the Opera House website.
As the ultimate accolade for his new record, Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon wrote about Kurt in her new artist biography: “Kurt does his own myth making; a boy/man with an old soul voice in the age of digital everything becoming something else, which is why this focused, brilliantly clear and seemingly candid record is a breath of fresh air…. a handshake across the country, east to west coast, thru the dustbowl history (“valley of ashes”) of woody honest strait forward talk guthrie, and a cali canyon dead still nite floating in a nearly waterless landscape. The record is all air, weightless, bodyless, but grounded in convincing authenticity, in the best version of singer songwriter upcycling.”
b’lieve i’m goin’ down… is out right now via Matador/Remote Control.
