After several albums on various indie labels, Vile signed with Matador Records in 2009 and would find increasing success with each new album. his 2013 album, “Walkin’ On A Pretty Daze”, broke through bigger than anything before it, taking Vile’s blurry-eyed musings and signature song writing style to a worldwide audience. He would continue frequent collaborations, working with a multitude of special guests on his own records as well as co-creating albums with Steve Gunn and Courtney Barnett.

The album features 14 Vile originals and a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Wages of Sin,” and the first single is “Like Exploding Stones” The blissed-out, seven-minute track features Sun Ra Arkestra‘s James Stewart and a fair amount of synthesizer.
