For those who missed it, Mr. Kurt Vile performed a soul-stirring set with his Violators at this weekend’s Pitchfork Festival in Chicago. Vile’s sun-soaked guitar melodies and matter-of-fact vocal delivery offered the perfect soundtrack under the hot summer sun. For some time now I have been a big fan of Vile’s genuine authenticity and unique sound. To put it plainly, this dude is real. You can stream most of the set from yesterday’s performance below.

Also, the second video off Vile’s stunning 2011 release Smoke Ring for My Halo appeared a week or so ago. Check out the video for the album’s lead track “Baby’s Arms” shot entirely on a Windows Phone.
