RNR News and Notes

 

 

In addition to announcing a summer tour this week, Kurt Vile released two accoustic songs ... a stripped down version of his Bottle It In opener “Loading Zones" and an amazing redition of The Rolling Stones slanky slide guitar classic “No Expectations,” from the Beggars Banquet album.  Hearing Vile’s put his indie-folk twang on the lyrics “You heart is like a diamond/You throw your pearls at swine/And as I watch you leaving me/You pack my peace of mind,” puts a whole new light on the song.  Take a listen below and check the tour dates further down ...
