Kurt Vile's music has an easygoing charm that is hard to resist. His guitar work offers up laid-back grooves that are deceptively simple, and his vocal delivery feels like a comfortable hang with an old friend.

Vile is beloved in the indie rock community. He’s played with an array of collabotors, like Courtney Barnett, Steve Gunn, J. Mascis, and the War on Drugs. But Vile's most steady partnership is with his backing band, the Violators, who join him in Studio A to play a few songs from his new record, Bottle It In.

During this episode of FUV Live, Vile also opens up about the making of his seventh studio album.
