Kurt Vile’s fourth full-length is also his best, as it distills classic American guitar music into one singular and sublime vision. Sonically and compositionally, Vile still cycles between strummers and fingerpicked mazework, but the battery of pedal effects is mostly gone. Rather than stitch loop to loop to loop, Vile’s given every marvelous, carefully placed layer all kinds of room to aerate. Every sonorous detail can now be heard in full, and Vile’s voice has taken on a new, mountainous presence in the center of each song. The conversation’s grown far more engaging.
