Kurt Vile, has long been known as a rambling blues man whose complex, dreamlike melodies fuck with long-standing norms of the genre. But, did you know Kurt Vile is also a piano man? On “Like Like This,” the latest preview from his forthcoming Matador album, Vile augments that wandering guitar style of his, not with more guitar and more feedback, but with a persistent piano loop giving, this otherwise rootsy track a sly modern feel. So, yes, the piano man label suits Vile well, too, that’s long as he doesn’t start leading us through sad sack, sing-along ballads, too, of course. Kurt Vile’s b’lieve i’m goin down… will be released on September 25th on Matador Records.
