Kurt Vile - Wakin On A Pretty Daze mp3 album

Wakin on a Pretty Daze is the fifth studio album by American indie rock musician Kurt Vile, released on April 9, 2013 on Matador Records. Produced by both John Agnello and Kurt Vile & the Violators, the album is the first not to feature contributions from long-time collaborator and former bandmate Adam Granduciel. Regarding the album's thematic and lyrical content, Vile stated, "It’s just about my life, without thinking too much about it. I feel comfortable with the lyrics

But it’s the presentation that’s so comfortable and compelling, designed for those of us who drop the tone arm, lay back, and let the music wash over us as we scan the liner notes and get swept away with the lyric sheets. com/watch?v I4RlljcBKg0 time laps presentation of this feat shows what.

Kurt Vile gets expansive on his fifth record in six years. On previous releases, he perfected the art of the concise, intimate psych-pop song; here, his beautiful, rambling, reverb-drenched electric melodies and textured, finger-picked acoustic runs circle but never settle, while his lyrics explore the minutiae of life, the little details that matter most to him. He creates a complete landscape, with most songs stretching beyond pop’s traditional three to four minutes to create a subtle, thoughtful world you’ll truly get lost in.

So the question we must ask is, why must we leave such a refreshing and uplifting album such as this. xpand. 0 of 0 users found this helpful. I remember reading a KurtWakin on a Pretty Daze is Kurt Vile’s follow up to the critically acclaimed 2011 release, Smoke Ring for My Halo. When you go to listen to a Kurt vile record, it is like reaching for a glass of water. It isn’t going to blow you away with anything overly sweet, but it is going to be satisfying.

Three or four years ago, I saw Kurt Vile play one of the worst live sets of my life. He was the second act on a triple-bill at Chicago’s Empty Bottle, one that also featured Fucked Up and Zola Jesus, two strong and dynamic and ferocious live acts. Vile, by contrast, stood up there with his guitar, a goofy half-smile on his face, and bumbled his way through a bunch of songs that never seemed to end. He stood there, staring at a big clump of nothing off to the side of the stage, only barely even holding the space, hiding behind his vast hair

Reviews about Kurt Vile - Wakin On A Pretty Daze (31):
Yayrel
A bit more sunny than his apparent influences (Lou Reed, Hot Tuna and countless folk singers) with a screwball optimism that recalls Marc Bolan. Consistently enjoyable.
snowball
My copy sounds wonderful - nice and quiet. can't complain
GEL
Let me preface this by saying this album's music is an easy 10/10. That being said this pressing is not good. The LP is compressed a bit too much and rather loud. I believe this is a victim of the bad pressing happening as of late.
HappyLove
A and B are pressed way off centre - sounds very out of tune
Nuadazius
Great record. Too bad it to Matador 3 tries to send me one that wasn't badly warped.

This review’s not meant for the download, purchase it on line, store it in the cloud listener ... this review’s for those who are still lost in the dream, feet firmly routed in the 60’s and 70’s, where giant discs of wax shouted like beacons, calling to likeminded souls. Why hey, this isn’t even a review of the music, it’s a review of the physical product, and all that I feared lost for all time.Kurt Vile’s Walkin’ On A Pretty Daze is a brilliant blast from that past, delivered as a limited edition numbered gatefold on two transparent aqua blue platters spinning at 33⅓ rpms, and sounding like nothing you’ll ever hear on compact disc. But it’s the presentation that’s so comfortable and compelling, designed for those of us who drop the tone arm, lay back, and let the music wash over us as we scan the liner notes and get swept away with the lyric sheets. Presentations like this don’t so much demand our attention, it’s more that they entice us in, unfolding, and like the music, showering us with something new at each turn.As a pre-release to Walkin’ On A Pretty Daze, Kurt had a commissioned wall mural painted down under the subway at Front and Master’s Streets in Philadelphia, right next to his home, painted with images and slogans taken from the album, and the http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4RlljcBKg0 time laps presentation of this feat shows what would become the album cover for most people would come to know, though here, only the top half is presented, with Kurt giving us all of the mural’s detail on a sheet of small stick-ons, so that we can arrange and manipulate the mural in any manner we choose. And at this point, I must sadly inform you that some fool has since painted over this piece of artwork, for no apparent reason than he could. Nevertheless, this album touches the listener on a visual and playfully physical level, one that keeps the music in check, and hopefully reminding us not to take ourselves so seriously.There was a time when it was almost, but not quite, common to be dazzled by records like this, and these treats are what made owning and cherishing the physical product so tasty and special. So here’s to all of you who never peeled the Velvet Underground’s banana, punched out the buckle to open the Sticky Fingers zipper, or where mindful enough not to decorate their bongs with the Wish You Were Here stickers. But now that I think of it ... my hats off to all of you who did peel the banana, opened the zipper, and plastered those stickers, leaving me to hope for more of what I find right here.*** Oh ... and on a musical note, please do see my review of this great piece of music.Review by Jenell Kesler

By no means is Walkin On A Pretty Daze a lazy album, though it does have that feeling, that same feeling The Kinks tried to capture on “Sunny Afternoon,” yet couldn’t seem to sustain the lack of momentum. But Kurt’s managed to sustain that lack of momentum and more, where fluffy clouds and contagious yawns pass the day ... and he does it by engaging long soft songs that morph, cycle, re-cycle, and fold endlessly back onto themselves in true stoner fashion, without edges, almost without consciousness, existing for but a moment, then caught on a breeze, and are gone. I sincerely doubt that these numbers simply rained down on Kurt Vile ... from his lyrics, they seem to have required a great deal of thought and consideration. Take the lines, “To be frank, I’m fried, and that’s fine,” though he follows that up later with “Not feelin’ it,” which literally means “not eatin’,” because if one’s not working and creating songs, then there’s no food on the table. But then he turns the tables and hits us with a Beat Poet’s attitude on “A Girl Called Alex,” where he obsesses over the imaginary life he’s created for his friends, endlessly thinking about them, and weaves one of the sweetest ballads with limited lyrics, that cuts right to the heart. And all of this makes the album more of a literary diary, where in a true Dylan-esq Blonde On Blonde dance step, he slips out clues through secretive imagery, allowing the listener to string together some meaningful understanding, and perhaps a new way of perceiving the world.Walkin On A Pretty Daze is not psychedelic in the fashion that it reaches out, grabs you, bestowing wondrous visions across the landscape of your mind ... it’s much more ordinary than that, focusing on being comfortable, being right here where you are, and letting all things ordinary and comfortable surround and sustain you. To be honest, the songs barely ebb from the speakers, they more ooze into being, and once out of the tube, are impossible to put back in.And through all of this, if Kurt has any message at all, it’s that it’s good to do things, it’s great to achieve, yet in true Zen fashion, allow it all to seem effortless.Review by Jenell Kesler
Oso
This is my firt LP from Kurt Vile, and a very late 2013 discovery. Ever since discovering this album, it's been playing regularly since. This limited edition (mine is #547), is very well packaged, and my copy is dead quiet. Highly recommanded. I rate this album 4 stars.
Voodoogore
Mine had a download card jammed into the fold
Conjulhala
Anyone else having the surface noise issue on "Wakin on a pretty day"? Very audible hiss, on that track only. Sucks, it's a great song.
Vonalij
I have surface noise on Side B, and a noticeable gash on the third song on Pure Rain. Will probably return to Amazon to get a new copy.
Bev
Did anyone else not get a download card?
LoboThommy
Just to make this more confusing for you guys: I have number 0058. I bought it at the record store where I work in Berkeley California (USA)...
Frlas
I emailed Matador earlier to ask about the same numbering issue Matt2011 had. They informed me it was because of the 1500 pressed for the UK release. They didn't mention anything about those 1500 not being foil stamped, however it seems they likely weren't.
Nafyn
aspirin44 & ilikemilk & Emilgoul : a friend of me does have the same. UK version, no stamp / numbering on the back. So that makes 4, i think we can conclude the UK pressing isn't numbered.
Gindian
I don't own this album, but 'Wakin On A Pretty Day' is such a good fucking song. God damn gold.
LiTTLe_NiGGa_in_THE_СribE
Question to those with the UK limited edition: Mine is not numbered either, so I guess I got the UK edition, but mine has the catalognumber OLE 998-0, and not OLE 998-2. Does yours have that too?
Ungall
How does the blue vinyl sound?
CrazyDemon
to answer my own question - Just purchased the blue vinyl. on good hifi, it sounds fantastic! no problems at all here. quiet, dynamic, mastered beautifully.
Agagamand
Eh, it sounds ok. I've heard worse, but colored vinyl never sounds better than black.
Wrathmaster
I have the US version, and though it clearly states it's limited to 3,500 copies in the US on the website, mine is numbered 3684. Confused.
Shalizel
I had something similar happen when I picked up Nirvana's "Insecticide" and got number 4001 on a "limited to 4,000" release. Talked to someone about and they said it's because there are often "casualties" in the pressing process that don't work out so they end up disposing of the default copies but continue the numbering. Hope that helps.
Stanober
same as aspirin44. the uk pressing is not stamped.
Hulbine
My copy is similar to your huntnew1 - Purchased today and it has OLE 998-0 as catalog number. Same "Authentic ESPO stickers included" sticker. Mine says Deluxe edition and the number on the back is 3565. I purchased from my local independent record store.
Rishason
My cat# is different from those listed. Its OLE 998-0. It was bought in the US on the day of its release. The album cover is slightly different from the one pictured above...It only has a little graffiti written on the wall behind him. The album cover also has a sticker that reads 'Authentic ESPO stickers included Design Your Own Album Cover! Deluxe Numbered Edition Pressed On Blue Vinyl Plus! Download Card MP3 & FLAC'
Bu
Maybe I have a very limited version, but mine is not numbered with a foil stamp on the back cover (british deluxe edition)
