Kurt Vile performs a meditative live version of “Gold Tone” for Volcom
Surf / skate company Volcom has released a new video in its “True To This” series featuring Kurt Vile playing “Gold Tone” off of last year’s Wakin On A Pretty Daze. The clip shows Vile playing the song live in the studio as he talks about the meditative and soothing nature of both skateboarding and playing guitar.
Short of a few west coast dates in October and November, Vile is taking a well-deserved break after a year of touring in support of Daze, though he’s kept in the headlines, jamming with his buddies in War on Drugs and coping with his mural getting whitewashed. Hopefully this time to himself yields some new songs that will be on the next KV record. Check out the “Gold Tone” video below.
