On Monday (3/8), Kurt Vile celebrated the 10-year anniversary of his great fourth studio album and first release after signing with Matador, Smoke Ring For My Halo. To commemorate the occasion, Kurt participated in a Tim's Twitter Listening Party for the album on Monday, where he shared behind-the-scenes stories and more.
As things began, Kurt reminisced on the opening track, "Baby's Arms," saying, "'Baby's arms' is a milestone song in my life. always thought it shoulda been a hit (not too late!) and also thought it was quite cinematic... wrote it before I had any record deals to speak of (on my couch in Philly)." He also noted that his bandmate Rob Laakso "triggered the acoustics thru a modular synth (I know which one I'm just not telling you)... they call him the doctor for that reason."
