I haven't watched any of HBO's Animals, the new animated comedy from the Duplass brothers (that joins their live-action comedy Togetherness in ensuring a future on HBO that is all mumblecore; pray to your Greta Gerwig master now), but if this clip of Kurt Vile's guest appearance is any indication of the quality of the show, I might need to give it a shot.
The hippie rock mainstay had a heck of year in 2015 with the critically acclaimed b'lieve i'm goin down... and we named "Pretty Pimpin'" our track of the year. And now he's getting to show up in HBO shows. It won't be long before Kurt Vile stops being a cult figure in stoner rock and he has some mainstream cultural recognition (and good for him; he's earned it). He plays a squirrel named Kurt Vile in the show and sings a song about nuts, but let's be honest. It would have been way funnier if his character was named Kurt Voll...cause, I mean, the joke is literally right there.
