Kurt Vile In Concert: ATP Festival 2010

Washed over by echo, even live, Kurt Vile sounds as if he's in his bedroom with a group of his bleary-eyed buddies, fiddling with a four-track recorder. Vile was like a shaggy-haired Lou Reed at the All Tomorrow's Parties music festival in New York on Sept. 5, running through his playfully hazy pop songs backed by The Violators.

Special thanks to WFMU for the recording of these ATP concerts. For more information, visit wfmu.org.
