Kurt Vile & The Violators

Friday 30 October

Il ne s’est toujours pas coupé les cheveux, et c’est tant mieux. Si Kurt Vile a connu un flamboyant début de carrière en tant de co-fondateur des désormais intouchables The War On Drugs, sa discographie solo, entamée après son départ du groupe, dit tout sur l’étendue de son talent de songwriter. Rares sont ceux qui, comme lui, rendent encore le rock touchant, humain, à fleur de peau. Le nouvel album de cet éternel rêveur renforce encore sa capacité à ouvrir les vannes de nos émotions, tout en douceur.

Thankfully, he has still not cut his hair. Despite his flamboyant early career as co-founder and former member of the now-untouchable War On Drugs, his subsequent solo career is a testament to his song writing talents. He is among the few who can create rock music that is touching, humane, and sensitive. The tracks on this dreamer’s latest album gently opens the floodgates of our feelings, once again.
