Smoke Ring For My Halo - Kurt Vile. Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей коллекцией. Smoke Ring for My Halo is the fourth studio album by American indie rock musician Kurt Vile, released on March 8, 2011 on Matador. The album was produced by John Agnello, Kurt Vile and his backing band, the Violators. Regarding the album's lyrical content, Vile stated: Its just me and those thoughts you have late at night when nobody is around. It is more a feeling than a statement a general. Philly-based singersongwriter Kurt Vile lit up the indie rock radar in 2009 with his cynical, lo-fi, classic . proto-punk Matador debut. Fans of the visceral, . fuzz-folk that dominated Childish Prodigy may be taken aback by the production upgrade on Smoke Ring for My Halo, but the cleaner sound doesnt mean that the floors arent still filthy. Kurt Vile. Smoke Ring For My Halo. Beggars от лица компании Matador Beggars Catalogues, LatinAutor - PeerMusic, BMI - Broadcast Music Inc. Kurt Vile's fourth full-length may also be his best, as it distills classic American guitar music into one singular and sublime vision. So begins the sharply titled On Tour, a spacious, diary-like explosion nestled just a few minutes into Smoke Ring for My Halo, Kurt Vile's fourth and finest full-length to date. Strings buzz, strummed patterns double back on themselves and from up above it all, the Philadelphia-native showers everything with cosmic, harp-like harmonics. Album 2011 17 Songs. Released March 8, 2011. Smoke Ring for My Halo Tracklist. Baby's Arms Lyrics. Regarding the albums lyrical content, Vile stated: Its just me and those thoughts you have late at night when nobody is around. It is more a feeling than a statement a general wandering feeling. Its kind of a wandering record. Smoke Ring for My Halo Q&A. On a whole, Smoke Ring for My Halo works because it has both lilting atmosphere and a rumbling, if trudging, pulse. Full Review. Best of 2011. Worst of 2011. It took some time for this album to grow on me as it is my introduction to Kurt Vile, but I love it. I love his voice and his great songwriting. 8mo. Plastic Pulse. Midday, late night, sunny summer afternoon, foggy grey on this album in any of those conditions and it still fits. Kurt Vile : Smoke Ring for My Halo,альбом, рецезия, трек-лист, mp3, тексты песен. March 8, 2011 5:10AM ET. Smoke Ring for My Halo. Will Hermes. Philly's Kurt Vile can sound like Bob Dylan, John Mellencamp or Lou Reed - if those standard-bearers were murmuring through a speakerphone after a few salvia bongs. On Vile's fourth LP, the stoner haze lifts a bit, and he settles on a mood: chilled-out but guarded, and wrapped in gorgeous folk-blues guitar-picking
