Kurt Vile - Wakin on a Pretty Daze 12"
Out of Stock
Wakin on a Pretty Daze is Vile's most spacious, becalmed record yet, and it contains some of his best-ever brand of cosmic stand-up. It opens, literally, with a stretch and a yawn: On the (almost) title track "Wakin on a Pretty Day", a wah'ed guitar rubs the grit out of its eyes while Vile beholds his furiously ringing phone with clinical detachment: "Phone ringing off the shelf/ I guess somebody has something they really wanna prove to us today," he notes. Unperturbed, he moves along, concerned with something far more pressing: "I gotta figure out what kind of wisecrack I'm gonna drop along the way -- today." The music quickens for a beat or two at this prospect, but settles back down. In Vile's universe, there is time enough for everything.
