KURT VILE – ” One Trick Ponies “

Last fall, Kurt Vile teamed up with Courtney Barnett for the collaborative album Lotta Sea Lice. Now, he’s about to launch his upcoming seventh solo album — his first solo effort since 2015’s b’lieve i’m goin down, which became highest charting Billboard 200 release . Judging by the instrumentally intricate and lyrically humorous lead single “Loading Zones,” Bottle It In picks up where Vile left off with few detours: His brand of twangy slack-rock is unmistakably him, and this new project will fit seamlessly into Vile’s quickly growing catalog.

Kurt Vile has now shared a third single off his new album Bottle It In, which comes out next week (10/12) via Matador Records. Like the previous singles, “One Trick Ponies” has that laid-back, trademark Kurt Vile feel but manages to sound like something new for KV too. He’s joined by Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa and Beachwood Sparks’ Farmer Dave Scher on the harmony-fueled chorus, and KV also shows off his harmonica playing on this one.

Kurt Vile also has several tour dates coming up, including a run with the great Jessica Pratt
