mp3 | kurt vile | walkin' on a pretty day

another floating, lighthearted jam that deftly serves as a harbinger for the impending warmth of the coming summer months, kurt vile's recently released "walkin' on a pretty day," succeeds in its straightforward and welcomed simplicity. at almost ten minutes in length, it would only seem to make sense for the track to go through a series of transitions and progressions. instead, the song explores and showcases vile's innate ability to construct songs that are almost overwhelmingly basic, while simultaneously demonstrating a delicate sense of precision and an attentive ear.  the song could be an hour long and still feel entirely unforced.  kurt vile's forthcoming full-length walkin' on a pretty daze is slated for an april 9 release date.  stream the albums first single above, and grab the (right click, save link as) download here.
