Release date: March 2011
Smoke Ring For My Halo is Kurt Vile's fourth album and second official release for Matador Records. It was released on March 8, 2011.
Smoke Ring For My Halo is a gorgeously layered record. Ranging from the tender breezy folk in "Jesus Fever" to the tuff urban guitar riff of "Puppet To The Man," Vile's distinctive Philly-accented vocal ties together a sweeping & evocative project - a true American psychedelic folk album.
Recorded at the Magic Shop by John Agnello, the album is a massive step forward for one of the country's most beloved (not least by other musicians) rock songwriters.
