SINGLES: None

OTHER SONGS YOU MAY KNOW: No

LINEUP: Kurt Vile, mostly

WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT: More lo-fi home recordings, and second-rate ones at that, really.

 SOME WORDS, PHRASES AND CLAUSES ABOUT THIS RECORD: Kurt Vile’s second batch of lo-fi home recordings are definitely a lesser selection from his first collection, and don’t really foretell what was going to happen with his career.

Many of the tracks were just noise experiments or tonal exercises. The actual songs are OK, but they can wear on you because of the recording quality.

The next EP and album showcased Vile and his backing band. I’d really pass on this one.

NOTES & MINUTIAE: These were recorded from 2003 through 2008.

IS THERE A DELUXE VERSION:  No

GRADE: C-: If lo-fi sound experiments are your thing, be my guest.
