Kurt Vile – “Jesus Fever”

Amrit Singh | January 7, 2011 - 1:17 pm

“Jesus Fever” joins “In My Time” on the list of advance listens from Kurt Vile’s forthcoming Smoke Ring For My Halo, the Philly songwriter’s second LP for Matador. The sedate jangle and strummer also joins “Overnight Religion” and “God Is Saying This To You” in evincing Vile’s interest in exploring a thematic spirituality, here via lines about being a ghost and the inevitability of being, one day, “already gone,” and the similar inevitability of the inability to “escape this song”; we go, art is forever. Or at least until 2012.
