Philly-based lo-fi roots rocker Kurt Vile (who spoke with us this summer) has kept busy since 2009’s Childish Prodigy. He released a 7-inch for the song “In My Time,” and now we have news of another full-length. Smoke Ring For My Halo, his second full-length album for Matador, is set to be unleashed on March 8. The track list is here.
Recently, Vile’s music made the blog rounds when he was covered by Atlas Sound in a set of demos that also included a reworking of a Basement Tapes-era Bob Dylan track. Seems like a pretty high compliment to me. [Matador]
