Kurt Vile | Indie88 Black Box Sessions

Kurt Vile performs "Bassackwards" and "Peeping Tomboy" live in the Indie88 Black Box studio.

Kurt Vile visited Indie88 and performed “Bassackwards” from his 2018 record Bottle It In, as well as “Peeping Tomboy” from his 2011 album Some Ring for My Halo.

His first solo record in three years, Vile’s Bottle It In follows his 2015 album b’lieve i’m goin down…, which featured his most successful single to date with “Pretty Pimpin.” Between these albums, Vile recorded and toured with Courtney Barnett in 2017 on the critically acclaimed Lotta Sea Lice, and opened for Neil Young in front of 90,000 fans in Quebec.

Bottle It In was recorded in between tours and family road trips at various studios around the US. Bottle It In’s epic fourth track “Bassackwards” was written with producer Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, The War on Drugs) in Los Angeles at the end of a lengthy tour with the Violators.
