Kurt Vile – Wakin On A Pretty Day


In April, Kurt Vile is set to follow-up his brilliant Smoke Ring For My Halo, one of 2011’s most critically acclaimed records. The nine-minute album opener, “Wakin On A Pretty Day” is up there with Vile’s most atmospheric and effortless works. Just as the title suggests, it’s an unclouded meditative piece of sublime folk-rock, covered in a hazy, “lazy-day”-blur with Vile’s trademark flangered guitars and laid-back vocals. Stream the song below and watch the time-lapse documentary of Philly street-artist ESPO’s work on the album cover of Wakin On A Pretty Daze; out April 9 on Matador.
