Kurt Vile deserves a medal just for forming The War On Drugs. Not long after the debut of 'Wagonwheel Blues' (2008) he engineered an amicable split. All the touring was affecting his career, which now stretches to eight albums - almost one a year - on which he plays fuzzy rock songs in the spirit of Dinosaur Jr. and Neil Young. He wins new souls every step of the way. His first taste of chart success came in 2015 when 'Pretty Pimpin' reached the top of the Billboard Adult Alternative Songs chart. But Vile is in it for the long run. And he's a willing collaborator with kindred spirits. On the ‘Bottle In’ album (2018) he’s joined by Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth), Kevin Morby and Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint). This album has done better in Belgium than anywhere else.
