Kurt Vile: "Overnight Religion" - Video, Tour

It's been a while since we gave mention to Kurt Vile, but it isn't for lack of awesomeness. Vile is continuing to ride on the strength of last year's Childish Prodigy, and has lined up a summer tour (dates below) for June and July.

We stumbled across this gem while perusing the youtoobz, and we have to say: brilliant. The take on Vile's "Overnight Religion" is a simple, beautiful, and exemplary of Vile's songwriting skill. Moreover, it illustrates exactly why you should get out there and see him. So. Good.
