  • "Was All Talk" and "Too Hard" are my favorites of the moment off the new album.

    Doing some travelling this summer and luckily gonna catch Kurt in Dresden in June. I have never seen him before. Only concert I am looking forward to more this summer is the obvious one...Wrigley.

    He's really, really good live. Doesn't do or say much, other than play. When I saw him, I came away (1) impressed with his "live" voice, and (2) impressed with the Violators. In the words of Fabrice Fabrice on the Kroll Show, "that's a good band."

  • "Was All Talk" is a song I didn't like too much off the bat, now it's my favorite song on the album. "Snowlflakes are Dancing" is coming up fast.

    This is just a great album...Kurt is a good man. He's making the name proud.

    I really like Shame Chamber....those "Wo's!" are great. Infact I really like the whole album, one of the best of the year for me so far...

    Great album! Currently have it on repeat. Must be on the 2nd or 3rd or maybe 4th time through now. Now I'm not high. Just busy researching my PJ road trip!

    Childish Prodigy was his Matador debut and it was around that point he really found his stride in regards to his song writing. Not to belittle the material that came before it, which is excellent as well. But if you wanted to check him out but want to be conservative about it, look at his 3 Matador LPs. If they don't convince you of his talent, the other 2 LPs and the 3 EPs won't.
    Spot on.

    "Smoke Ring For My Halo" was critically acclaimed (and for good reason), and it's much more polished than his other stuff. "Childish Prodigy" is a little dingier (in a good way); there are times his voice sounds like Mick Jagger.

    If you're just wanting to get into him, start with "Smoke Ring," then to his new one, then follow up with "Childish Prodigy." You won't be disappointed, and I agree, if you're not into him after these three, you won't be disposed to liking his other, less-polished stuff.


    i gotta get smoke ring then. just getting into his music now and started with the new album from last year.....fucking love it so far

    Easily one of my favorite artists. If you see him live, he's got a sly sense of humor too.

    I would take a spin or two through "Childish Prodigy" before the show. He'll play a few off there (Freak Train, Hunchback, Monkey etc.).

    Bummed I won't be able to make his Detroit date due to a wedding.

    BUT if you are gonna make it out to a show, make sure you don't miss the opener, Waxahatchee. She's an incredible singer-songwriter well worth coming early for.

    On that note, Luke Roberts has a pretty good album from a few years ago. I can't tell you if he's good live or not, but his album was.
