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 counted Matt Sweeney and legendary Toronto group The Sadies in its attendees, is captured in short documentary film (bottle back), directed by Ryan Scott, which is released today and available to view HERE.
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. An excerpt of the performance of Baby’s Arms is available to listen to HERE.
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.
