Win Tickets ($70): Sabertooth Micro Fest @ Crystal Ballroom | Psych Rock Music Festival Featuring Kurt Vile and the Violators, The Minders, The Shivas (February 6)
Kurt Vile has a way of tying time in knots. You can hear it on his new album Smoke Ring For My Halo from the get-go – the pinwheeling guitars and reaching atmospheres of ‘Baby’s Arms’ are as strange as they are familiar: a demonstration of how Kurt can put worn methods and sounds through himself and end up with something that isn’t emotionally or sonically obvious. Instead we’re left with a record that contains traces of the past but doesn’t waste precious time in the now being reverent. To win, comment on this post here.
