Kurt Vile – Up Close & Personal

I was fortunate enough to catch a white hot Kurt Vile & The Violators set in Portland Sunday evening (supported by the always impressive Eat Skull) and while KV&V’s expansive take on things is a full-fledged sensory experience, there’s something to be said for the subtle approach of Kurt solo, too.  And with that, we’ve got a couple of clips from The Fader, a version of “He’s Alright”, and the above performance of “Slow Talkers”, featuring a bit of crucial family history (thanks to Nils for the links)
