Vile’s music centers on his world-weary voice and his excellent guitar playing: he is probably one of the more gifted guitarists of his generation. He uses familiar singer-songwriter elements such as soulful lyrics and skillfully arranged melodies harkening back to such greats as Bob Dylan and Neil Young while still managing to make it into his own singular brand. This is a man who clearly has a deep knowledge of music and doesn’t seem to have a phony bone in his body. Throughout the show quite a few audience members decided to lie down, close their eyes, and let Kurt Vile’s soothing, intricate music sink in. His music manages to put you in a state of reverie while still being immersive.
