Kurt Vile - Wakin on a Pretty Daze [2013] [Album]
Matador Records / CD
MP3 / V0 (VBR)

"Kurt Vile is slowly, quietly becoming one of the great American guitarists and songwriters of our time. This 69-minute album is comprised of sweeping, expansive songs that are both very intimate and conversational. 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. Beautifully produced by John Agnello, the record is filled with hazy, swooning guitar lines and dreamy, beatific, and occasionally sardonic vocals. It is summed up by the staggeringly gorgeous 9-minute opener"

NPR First Listen
There's something about Kurt Vile's voice that transcends whatever comes out of his mouth. He's not classically trained (not even close), and has no traditional range to speak of, but the laid-back Philadelphia guitarist is transfixing all the same. His mumbled words resonate with dogged determination. It's one of the reasons Vile has become something of a patron saint for the Great Recession's legions of accidental bohemians, who work hard while hardly working.

Wakin on a Pretty Daze, out April 9, is Vile's fifth album and arguably his best yet. He's still mumbling epiphanies as only he can, but his guitar work has taken a real step forward — he reaches Mark Knopfler heights here. Six of Daze's 11 songs surpass six minutes, thanks to extended guitar passages that burn slow-motion spirals in your brain. It's not often that you're left wanting more from a nine-and-a-half-minute song, but it's actually a little sad when "Wakin on a Pretty Day" finally winds down. And you won't hear a better eight-minute song all year than "Too Hard," a shambling tearjerker that sounds like a promise to love and protect his infant daughters.

No matter the length, every song on Wakin on a Pretty Daze feels like a ride on one of those moving walkways, when for a few wonderful moments life passes you by just a little slower than normal. That's a credit to Jesse Trbovich and Rob Laakso, Vile's crack backing players in The Violators, who never let their leader's feet touch the ground.
