watch the music video for kurt vile’s “pretty pimpin”

kurt vile isn’t reinventing the wheel any more so than kevin parker or adam granduciel, but like his counterparts in tame impala and the war on drugs, vile’s songwriting consistently reaches an incredible depth that can’t be ignored.  vile’s newest album, b’lieve i’m going down, is out september 25th via matador and vile teased its lead single earlier this week.  “pretty pimpin” circumvents the melancholic tendencies that dotted the back half of 2013’s excellent wakin on a pretty daze, instead honing in on a decidedly sunnier aesthetic, courtesy of vile’s ostinato guitar riffs.  watch the music video for “pretty pimpin” below.
