Kurt Vile – Jesus Fever

Kurt Vile has released four proper albums and two EP’s since his debut in 2008 but none are as fully realized as his latest, Smoke Ring For My Halo.  This album comes two years after Childish Prodigy (his first release for Matador Records) which is much longer than we are used to waiting for a new LP but all the extra work seems to have paid off.  Smoke Ring has a much more full sound without abandoning the lo-fi, basement recorded aesthetic that makes his work seem so personal.
