Vile, Kurt – “Childish Prodigy” – [Matador Records]
There are some real psychedelic gems on this solo project from this Philadelphia guitarist and singer. Other tracks are somewhat heavier and more intense, but all except 11 (which is instrumental) feature his deep voice delivering lyrics. Sometimes there???s a harmonica, horn, tambourine, or organ underneath. My picks are the ones with an upbeat strumming and hippie feel to them, and these sound a lot like a train chugging rhythmically along its tracks. Vile is on the train heading somewhere, and it???ll be interesting to find out his destination.
