Kurt Vile: Smoke Ring For My Halo

I've just discovered this Philadelphia artist, which is true for many, but it won't be long before everyone is talking about him. I read the Pitchfork review a couple of days before MOG added this latest release, and listening to his prior releases made me superhyped to hear it. Take the time to listen to these samples from Smoke Ring For My Halo. The title song is a fairly nice live video -- I couldn't find a studio cut, which has better sound. Enjoy something for a change.Who deserves it more?
