KURT VILE (With Band! SQUARE SHELLS RELEASE)/MAD SCENE/MEG BAIRD
Kurt Vile & The Violators are currently working on an autumn 2010 followup to last year's tremendous 'Childish Prodigy' with producer John Agnello, and while early signs are Kurt's got a monster of a new album in the works, let's address the gap between albums with a new 12/digital EP of post-'Prodigy' recordings, 'Square Shells' hitting stores on May 25. We've made a bit of racket over the past year about Vile being one of the more important figures in American music and while we love aggressive hyperbole as much as the next record label (especially when you agree with us), 2010 is shaping up to be a year in which Kurt's versatility as a singer-songwriter will be undeniable. It's hard for us to think of an artist who's been equally in his element sharing a stage with Big Star as he was doing the same with Fucked Up, and at the risk of really clobbering you over the head about our depth of feeling for this artist, we're thoroughly convinced his songs and performances are gonna be remembered long after considerations of genre & circuit have been forgotten.
