Aquarium Drunkard - TRANSMISSIONS

"It's funny, I was working up to it for so long...it's been my dream." This week on an all-new episode of our weekly Transmissions podcast, return guest Kurt Vile joins us from his basement studio Overnight KV to discuss his great new album (watch my moves). Loose, sprawling, and filled with spacey but intimate jams that couple drum machines, smoke-curled guitars, and off the cuff vocals, the record feels like being invited into Vile's head to sit down and hang out a spell.Since emerging from the Philadelphia freak underground in the mid-2000s, Vile has established himself as a quixotic singer/songwriter. Like his former bandmates in War on Drugs, Vile draws from rock & roll traditions, but turns them sidewise, imbuing his songs with a sidewise humor and charm. (watch my moves) is his first for Verve Records.This conversation with host Jason P. Woodbury is also like being invited into KV's head, as he shares thoughts on the new record, unpacks what he learned during the pandemic, reflects on working with producer Rob Schnapf, digs into his favorite Bruce Springsteen deep cuts, and offers musings on Neil Young, Kesha, and Sun Ra.Thanks for listening to Aquarium Drunkard Transmissions. We're part of the Talkhouse Podcast Network. If you liked what you heard, please subscribe to Transmissions on your favorite platform and tell your friends to listen to the show. We'll be back next Wednesday with another new episode.

S1 Ep2: Kurt Vile and John Agnello

The Matador Revisionist History Podcast

We return today with the second installment of the Matador Revisionist History podcast, which pairs artists and collaborators to discuss a Matador album celebrating a noteworthy anniversary. This episode honors Kurt Vile’s eternal and undeniable classic, Smoke Ring For My Halo (2011), which celebrated its 10th birthday back in March. Here, Kurt and producer John Agnello reminisce on the making of the record — setting the scene (“We were like the suburban Ramones,” says Kurt), geeking out, and hinting at the moment’s make-it-or-break-it pressures (“Better not f*%$ it up,” Kim Gordon told Agnello). Kurt and John both wind up using the word “magic” a lot and not without reason.
