Song of the Day: ‘Ocean City’ by Kurt Vile

By Staff | Jul 13, 2010

When Sonic Youth singer Kim Gordon mentions that she can’t stop listening to one of your albums, well, my friend, good things are happening for you.

Who are we to disagree with Kim Gordon, especially when it comes to Philly-based singer and guitarist Kurt Vile?

Highly prolific, Vile has released three albums and two EPs since 2008. His latest EP, released in May through Matador, hasn’t left our ears either. 

This outing is full of Vile’s warbled, droning and hypnotic lo-fi folk. Check out the lead track, "Ocean City," and prepare to join the club.
