God Is Saying This to You…
This is note worthy. Apparently when Kurt Vile's first LP Constant Hitmaker (which you may recall was my #1 jam of 2009) came out, there was a "sister album" called God Is Saying This to You… that was released on BK record label Mexican Summer. All I know about Mexican Summer is that the most recent release from my fave band of all times, Valet, was put out by them, but looks like they also just put out a 12" by blog favorite Black Moth Super Rainbow.
Anywhosers... "God Is Saying This to You" proceeded to sell out ASAP and disappeared into eBay record collector obscurity. Thankfully, Mexican Summer just repressed it in a limited edition 2,000 LP copies with digital download included, boo yah.
Here's the blurb on the album from when it first came out, but all you really need to know is it sounds exactly like Constant Hitmaker.
"More than a mere odds-n-ends collection, Kurt Vile’s latest LP is a compilation of tracks from Overnite KV, a tour-only CDR, along with a handful of extra tracks recorded specifically for this release. Here we find Kurt solo, four-trackin’ as usual, and blowing minds with his mix of bluegrass guitar, blazed singer-songwriterisms, and the knowledge of how to balance these contexts out with laidback precision. Psychedelic to its core, these twelve tracks speak to the will of the casual perfectionist, honing his craft with effortless aplomb. You’ll be hearing plenty more from this Philadelphian wizard in the months to follow, and we’re happy to keep the ball rolling with God Is Saying This to You… "
