Download Kurt Vile ‘Square Shells EP’ for FREE

May 25th, 2010 at 11:21 am by Robby

Around 2008/2009 Kurt Vile was releasing so many amazing recordings (not excluding the Matador-released barnburner, ‘Childish Prodigy’) it at times could get pretty difficult to keep up. It’s been a little quiet on the recorded music front lately; Kurt’s been touring pretty much non-stop only taking time of to put the finishing touches on his third longplayer, which we’ll be telling you about very soon.

But, today we’re excited to release the newest recorded missive from KV, his ‘Square Shells’ EP — in fact, we’re so excited for you to hear this, that we’re giving away a free download of the EP right now and for the next 24 hours, or so.

UPDATE: Thanks for checking in, the free download is now closed but the EP is available to purchase over at our webstore, in record shops around the world and through your favorite online retailers.

You’ve probably already heard the the track we leaked a few weeks ago, “Invisibility: Non-Existent”, but you’re gonna want to dig into this EP to hear all of it’s perfect summery strummers and psyched-out soundscapes.

By entering your email address below, you’ll get an instant download (and be on a very special Kurt Vile mailing list — we promise we won’t share, sell, or make fun of your email address)

The Square Shells vinyl 12″ is also in stores today and at 12″x12″, the art by Matt Horseshit and Sore Eros has never looked better…

    Hey, I’ve entered my e-mail four times, to two different accounts, starting eight hours ago, and I still haven’t gotten a download link. It’s not in my spam, either. What gives?

    I tried all day yesterday too and didn’t receive any emails and couldn’t get any link up – what a crock of sh*t…nice way to get email addresses boys!

  11. john Says:

    No luck getting this to download… Is it US only? I’m in London

  12. Nick Says:

    It should pop up a download box when you submit your email, just like mediafire or rapidshare, etc… If it doesn’t, you probably have an overactive pop-up blocker.

    this rules! thanks so much. i finally get around to buying “childish prodigy” and then i get a free ep the next day! amazing. kinda curious why childish prodigy cost so much more than the rest of the matador lps, though (it was $5 more than the times new viking record at all the stores in portland, or) not that it isn’t worth the price or anything, i know you guys are running a business. just curious…
