EDITORS’ NOTES

Kurt Vile’s hazy, introspective folk-rock somehow sounds more effortless with each album. Stripping back some of the layers and length of 2013’s gorgeously textured Wakin On a Pretty Daze, B'lieve I'm Goin Down... chronicles the low-key but disarmingly funny inner monologue of a seemingly ordinary dude—half Neil Young and half Winnie the Pooh. It starts with a long look in the bathroom mirror (“Pretty Pimpin”) and eventually makes it to the front door (“That’s Life, tho (almost hate to say)”), with some extraordinary insights along the way.
