A couple weeks back my boss and I were talking about how surreal it is that there was a period where Kurt Vile and Adam Granduciel were in the same band. That's just too much old school stoner-rock prowess in one band. I'm just grateful we live in a kind enough universe where they're both making music at the same time. I bring that convo up because Kurt Vile's newest video, "Life Like This," has just enough hints of Slave Ambient-era The War on Drugs to remind me of his old band. This track doesn't grab you by the throat as immediately as "Pretty Pimpin'" does, but it's hypnotizing groove sinks it's claws into you and the surrealist animated video is pretty much the acid trip I would expect to have with Kurt Vile. b'lieve i'm going down is out 9/25, and it can't get here soon enough.
