In expanding upon this year’s impressive release of Wakin On A Pretty Daze, Kurt Vile will next month be dropping off a series of outtakes that didn’t make the aforementioned compilation. These aren’t your average “throwaways,” however, because if “Feel My Pain is any indicator, Vile’s new project will be quite impressive in its own right. The on-hand audio is filled with enchantment, in large part due to the acoustic guitar playing from the American musician, as well as his soft vocals, all accounting for an undeniably engaging, old school-sounding affair. In speaking on “Feel My Pain,” Vile said:
“This track was recorded during the first cluster of sessions at Dreamland Studios, May 2012. (same sessions that conjured up most of album opener “wakin on a pretty day” I should add!) “Feel My Pain” is a particularly meticulous guitar composition that i remember playing over and over back when writing it and then even more so when i had finished it, sort-of possessed. We added a lot to this later only to strip it back again favoring the raw to the chamber-pop this go ’round. Spectral arrangement and a mellow-ominous delivery (if such a thing is possible)…
KV- gtrs/vox RL- bass engineered by John Agnello mixed by Rob Laakso produced by KV & RL”
