Steve Powers whips up a cool mural for Kurt Vile's new album

Posted by Liv Siddall,

There’s a new Kurt Vile album coming out soon, hooray! (If you haven’t heard the previous albums, go away and listen) And as if that wasn’t a big enough deal, Steve Powers has painted a mural for the album artwork. And, you know, as if that wasn’t enough, the footage of him painting it has been set to a nine-minute teaser track off the new record. Then they decided to make a documentary about the whole process! Whose idea was this? We don’t know. But the footage of Steve at work, mixed with Kurt’s happy face in the evening light is enough to keep us happy for a while. Watch the music video above and the short documentary below.
