Kurt Vile – Childish Priodigy


Philadelphia singer-songwriter KURT VILE (yes, that is his real name) makes his Matador debut with “Childish Prodigy.” His second album (the first came out on the tiny Gulcher label, vinyl on Woodsist), it is a rich tapestry of rock and folk sounds, occasionally lo-fi, occasionally lustrous, hitting touchstones from Tom Petty to Street Legal-era Dylan to Spacemen 3 to Skip Spence. “Childish Prodigy” is more diverse than its predecessor, and ranges from pounding rockers like “Hunchabck” and “Freak Train” to gorgeous folky numbers like “Overnight Religion” and the soaring trumpet in “Amplifier.” This is an absorbing and addictive record with layers and layers of discovery.
