Kurt Vile, incredibly productive songwriter, preps Smoke Ring For My Halo for March

Singer-songwriter/all-around busy body Kurt Vile has announced plans to release Smoke Ring For My Halo, his second LP for Matador, on March 8. The album was recorded by fellow non-procrastinator John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr., The Hold Steady, Sonic Youth) and looks to reaffirm Vile’s steadily building reputation as one of the brighter stars on Matador’s roster. “In My Time,” the album’s first single, was released as a limited-edition 7-inch in November, and you can check it out at the Chocolate Grinder.

Vile recently wrapped up a five-week tour with The Violators and was a special guest on WFMU’s The Best Show On WFMU with Tom Scharpling on December 22. Enjoy all three-plus glorious hours right over here, if you’re into that sort of thing.
