Kurt Vile "Jesus Fever" video

Smoke Rings For My Halo, the fourth album from Philadelphia singer Kurt Vile, is one of my favorite albums of the year (so far).  "Jesus Fever," with it's jangly guitar and dark, brooding vocals is a standout track on the album.  Vile and his Violators will be in Austin next month for the Austin City Limits music festival, as well as opening for Bright Eyes' official ACL after show at Stubb's on September 18th.  Buy your tickets here.

Check out the official video for "Jesus Fever."

NPR is streaming "Honey Bunny," a new track by the San Francisco duo Girls.  The track, off their forthcoming album Father, Son, Holy Ghost, is a sunny, surf-pop homage to all things vintage. Primary songwriter, Christopher Owens, said he wrote the song about his mother back in 2008.
