Kurt Vile- “Wakin on a Pretty Day”

Normally, the songs that I compulsively listen to are short bursts with big hooks. Kurt Vile’s “Wakin on a Pretty Day” could not be much further from that description.

The song ambles on for 9 minutes and 24 seconds. It is the sonic equivalent of s lazy morning stretch in sunlight. Blissful acoustic strumming keeps the song moving forward while Kurt Vile offers a subdued meditation about being immersed in his pleasant surroundings. A spacey electric guitar noodles its way into the mix at both the beginning and end of the song like an abstract auditory doodle.

Lazy, hazy, amorphous and somehow completely captivating.
