Coming October 2 : Kurt Vile - 'Speed, Sound, Lonely KV (ep)'


"How Lucky"





photo : Kate Taylor Battle

Kurt Vile’s Speed, Sound, Lonely KV (ep) was recorded and mixed in sporadic sessions that spanned four years at The Butcher Shoppe studio in Nashville, TN. It includes five songs — covers of John Prine and “Cowboy” Jack Clement as well as two originals — and was recorded alongside a cast of local heavies like Bobby Wood, Dave Roe, and Kenny Malone with Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys) and Matt Sweeney (Chavez, Superwolf) tossed into the mix as well.

Most importantly, it features what KV has called "Probably the single most special musical moment in my life” – a duet with the late John Prine on the songwriter’s well-loved tune, “How Lucky.”

“The truth is John was my hero for a long time when he came into The Butcher Shoppe to recut one of his deepest classics with me. And, man, I was floating and flying and I couldn't hear anything he told me while he was there till after he was gone for the night,” notes Vile in a personal statement that accompanies the record.

“A couple nights later we were playing ‘How Lucky’ together again; this time onstage at the Grand Ole Opry on New Year's Eve at the turn of 2020. Nothing like seeing John and his band of musical brothers and family and friends playing into the new decade in front of an adoring audience on that stage in Nashville, TN... and, yup, that's just how lucky we all got that night."

Speed, Sound, Lonely KV (ep) is out digitally on October 2nd. A physical edition will arrive early next year on pink-colored vinyl and CD.

Kurt Vile – Speed, Sound, Lonely KV (ep)
By Matt Sweeney
His body left this planet in 2014, but “Cowboy” Jack Clement still brings seekers like Kurt Vile to Nashville to find the wild and mellow musical spaces he created.

Jack was Nashville’s Wizard of Oz. As a producer, songwriter, and mentor he had a profound guiding hand in the careers of Jerry Lee Lewis, George Jones, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, Charlie Pride, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, Townes Van Zandt, and Kurt Vile’s hero John Prine. Clement’s still-out-of-print ’70s solo album All I Want To Do In Life is a holy grail for KV.

So Kurt asked me to introduce him to Jack’s protege, the great David “Fergie” Ferguson. Ferg is a Nashville studio legend in his own right and the owner/operator/house producer of The Butcher Shoppe, a recording studio he started with Prine. He was also Johnny Cash’s right-hand man and recording engineer. He’s a heavy, to say the least.

I’d told Kurt about meeting Ferg in 2005, when Rick Rubin asked me to play guitar on Cash’s America V and VI albums. Raised working in Jack’s studio, Fergie is hilarious. He’s very gruff, yet lovable and a unique mix of hillbilly and worldly. He’s the youngest of the Old Guard -- utterly unpredictable and surprising while always maintaining a deep sense of the traditional. I hung on his every word during the Rick Rubin sessions and learned every song he showed me.

In 2006 Ferg called me and said: “Man, you gotta come to Nashville and meet Jack Clement, get with the real guys before they’re all gone.” This invitation was daunting -- my NYC ass certainly didn’t know any “country licks”. He reassured me: “Hell, we don’t need any more country licks. We need something different. Besides, nobody’s really from Nashville ’cept for me and Jack loves weirdos so you’ll be fine.”

So I went and my life changed. Ferg opened the doors to the Nashville I’d dreamed about. I kept my cool on that visit and as a reward he told me I could bring my non-Nashville friends to town so he and I could produce records for them “as long as they got songs and can really hang”.

The friends I brought in became new wild cards for Fergie to shuffle into this magic deck. A lot of recording ensued. Jack Clement was in his twilight years, but burning bright. Jack’s home studio and The Butcher Shoppe were full of musical legends dropping by to pick songs, have a smoke, get weird, tell jokes, and make records. For years.

When Jack died in 2014, Ferg assumed the mantle and kept Jack’s loose-but-laser-focused studio-style going at The Butcher Shoppe with the same gang of musicians that came up in Clement’s world.

And Kurt Vile wanted in on the action.

It took a couple years for Kurt and Ferg’s schedules to line up, but they finally lined up like a motherfucker in May 2016 for a recording of KV's version of the Prine original “Speed of the Sound of Loneliness," among other songs.

Then KV came back again in late September 2016. Ferg booked two more days at the Butcher Shoppe and made another band for Vile, including keyboardist Bobby Wood (Dusty In Memphis, Elvis’s “Suspicious Minds”) bassist Dave Roe (Johnny Cash, Jerry Reed), Kenny Malone (George Jones and the rest!), Pat Mclaughlin (ripping solo artist and Prine's mandolin player for many years) along with me on guitar as a bridge between that gang and Vile’s East Coast freakness.

That first day at The Butcher Shoppe we recorded a cover of Cowboy Jack's "Gone Girl" and a remarkable blissed-out Vile original. We had to finish early, though, cuz Ferg had also lined up a big night: Some more of his friends to join Kurt for a loose evening of live music at The Station Inn, Nashville’s realest music venue.

KV: "It was backstage at the Station Inn where Ferg introduced me to John Prine for the first time. And the first thing John told me was that he heard and liked my version of ‘Speed of the Sound of Loneliness’. I knew Ferg had showed him that recording, but it was wild to hear him acknowledge it to say the least.... meeting him then was a perfect moment to do so, but also comical... I had my daughter Awilda back there with me at that moment -- who was 6 at the time -- and other interesting people were around like Billy Ray Cyrus, who was being really funny and cool... the other big reason I was there in Nashville at that time was to catch Prine's two 70th birthday shows at the Ryman... so to see him a couple nights before his big shows, warming up on such a tiny stage in a moment when i was sort of "in the scene" was a real treat and a trip... i had to break the ice by asking Billy Ray in front of everyone if he ever heard that Cypress Hill song where they namedrop him, to which he replied ‘no, i never heard it!’"

Our mind-blown and hungover selves returned to the Butcher Shoppe the next day to work a little more. It took another three years before Kurt could get back to mix what we did, but on that return trip he finally got to record a song with his hero John Prine.

KV: "Probably the single most special musical moment in my life."

Jack Clement was already gone when Kurt first came to town to catch his vibe. Now John Prine is gone and The Butcher Shoppe building has been sold. But the music Jack Clement made is about an energy between people, an unbroken thread. I’m grateful to witness how Fergie plugged Kurt Vile into Jack’s electric mainline of American music that he’d wired and switched on back in 1958. The songs Kurt recorded at The Butcher Shoppe have that continuous electrical charge running through them.

The new Butcher Shoppe Studio is 14 miles outside of Nashville in the countryside and the sound keeps rolling.

"speed of the sound of loneliness" was the first song recorded for this ep on May 26, 2016.
the last song, captured 3.5 years later on December 29, 2019, is called "how lucky" and that's exactly how i felt.
both are John Prine songs. "speed" was recorded to get John's attention. "lucky" was recorded to get John IN the studio.
welp... a couple-o-missions accomplished and that's how I'd prefer to roll on the regular. (thanks, Ferg!)

the truth is John was my hero for a long time when he came into the butcher shoppe to recut one of his deepest classics with me and, man, I was floating and flying and i couldn't hear anything he told me while he was there till after he was gone for the night. speaking of John talkin to me, well, his songs, they speak to my soul. that's the real reason I picked them to play. (but the other reasons are real as well.)

a couple nights later we were playing "how lucky" together again; this time onstage at the Grand Ole Opry on New Year's Eve at the turn of 2020. Nothing like seeing John and his band of musical brothers and family and friends playing into the new decade in front of an adoring audience on that stage in Nashville, TN... and, yup, that's just how lucky we all got that night.

recording with Ferg at the butcher shoppe was just the best. no bullshit, just solid music...
i never met Cowboy Jack Clement in the flesh on this earth but his "gone girl" cuts clean through to my soul for true.
we got that down in September 2016 on the same day as "dandelions" which i had just freshly written. "pearls" is a song i composed in my early 20s, finally galvanized to tape with the right boys on the same day we got "speed".

so many great and legendary musicians grace these sides ...heavy hitters across the multigenerational spectrum...
each played their parts like a songbird sings... (see liner notes)

-KV, Philadelphia 8-22-20

Kurt Vile - (bottle back) Documentary



In early September 2018, on the eve of the announcement of his latest album, 'Bottle It In' (celebrating its one-year anniversary this October), Kurt Vile – along with friends and fellow musicians – decamped to the Catskill Mountains in upper state New York to rehearse, prepare and ponder the year’s road ahead.

The brief getaway, which included Matt Sweeney and Toronto friends The Sadies, is captured in the short documentary film (bottle back), directed by Ryan Scott.

In between hanging out and exploring the remote and rainy surroundings, (bottle back) catches a solo acoustic adaptation of "Bassackwards", a performance of "Check Baby" with The Violators, and a special backyard rendition of "Baby's Arms" featuring The Sadies.

Somewhere between pre-tour workshop and countryside retreat, (bottle back) is an intimate and insightful glimpse into the creative process of one of the most prolific and celebrated singer-songwriters of his generation.

Having capped off an extensive North American tour this summer, Vile plays further festivals this autumn, including Levitation and Corona Capital, as well as a small handful of US headline shows. A list of upcoming dates can be found below.

New From Kurt Vile : "Timing Is Everything (And I'm Falling Behind)"


Kurt Vile premiered a new song earlier today, "Timing Is Everything (And I'm Falling Behind)" and it's exclusively available from Amazon Music.  If you're lucky enough to share your living space with an Alexa-enabled device, simply utter the phrase, "Alexa, play the new Kurt Vile song," and VOILA, your life with be enriched thru the miracle of A-L-E-X-A.   Kurt calls the song,  "a candid snapshot of KV & the Violators 'at home'; where we like it: sparse and jangly and as live as possible. Ok, fine, with some additional accoutrements (including a sick b bender overdub by Rob!). Jesse swells and chimes beautiful guitar as well. KV fingerpicks and sings. The lyrics are country blues. “Open the flood gates of a down pouring rain... in my brain.” Masterfully recorded in Athens, GA by our drummer Kyle somewhere inside a cluster of hazy band rehearsals on the roundabout way to a festival in Denver. Mixed by Peter Katis. This jam was one of many contenders for the last album, but we gonna start peeling em off for ya now instead."

Great Music For Terrible Times : 25% Off Holiday Sale


Dear Citizens of Earth,

As we reach the end of 2018, it would not be an exaggeration to say we’re in the midst of many difficult moments in human history.  The icecaps are melting.   America is on the brink of a constitutional crisis.  You can’t walk 15 feet in any major metropolis without breaking your neck on a discarded scooter.  Your personal data (including everything we collect in this campaign) is being used for nefarious means. Nearly 15% of the public believes we actually told someone to “sound more like Adele.”  Nearly $40 million was spent to produce “The Hurricane Heist”

All of that said, there is still beauty, mystery, and grandeur in what’s left of the fine arts.  And when you’re done with the fine arts, there’s Matador's incredible array of 2018 titles from Belle and Sebastian, Body/Head, boygenius, Car Seat Headrest, Lucy Dacus, Iceage, Interpol, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Liz Phair, Snail Mail, Kurt Vile and Yo La Tengo.  Will these records help you sort out a world gone mad? hey, they’re great, but not THAT GREAT.  Almost certainly, and that’s why your friends at Matador —a label as magnanimous as it is humble — are offering an unprecedented 25% OFF when you use the code, “terribletimes” thru December 13. Orders of $40.00 and above receive a free tote bag and take it from me, a tote bag skeptic, you’re way less likely to drop shit all over the sidewalk when you have a stylish bag.

MATADOR HOLIDAY SALE : 25% w/ code "terribletimes"

Out Today : KURT VILE - 'Bottle It In'



Today (Friday, October 12) marks the release date of Kurt Vile's eagerly awaited 'Bottle It In' - Kurt calls it his "best, deepest (and possibly weirdest) album to date," and WHEN HE'S RIGHT, HE'S RIGHT. Stream or order this sprawling-instant-classic, or track down the special blue 2XLP independent retail edition via this highly detailed map.

If you're a fan of the podcasting medium or simply long for a wide-ranging, effervescent chat between two of the modern age's most thoughtful conversationalists, you'll be thrilled to know that Kurt is Marc Maron's guest on this week's edition of WTF.

Kurt Vile and The Violators have added a second night at Brooklyn Steel, November 29, with support from Frankie Cosmos. Tickets are on sale Friday, October 19.
