Kurt Vile unveils '(bottle back)' documentary

The 20-minute visuals follow Kurt and friends pre-tour in upper state New York.

Following last year’s release of ‘Bottle It In’, Kurt Vile and his pals went to the Catskill Mountains in upper state New York to rehearse and prepare, in a pre-tour workshop/countryside retreat moment of R&R.

Captured by Ryan Scott, this time is the focus of a brand new 20-minute documentary released today called ‘(bottle back)’. An insightful and intimate look into Kurt’s creative process, ‘(bottle back)’ also catches a solo acoustic adaptation of ‘Bassackwards’, a performance of ‘Check Baby’ with The Violators, and a special backyard rendition of ‘Baby’s Arms’ featuring The Sadies.
