so outta reach
a collection of 5 original songs recorded during the sessions for ‘smoke ring for my halo’, later reworked & fleshed out.
garnering praise from peers (kim gordon, thurston moore, j mascis & bradford cox) & critics alike, vile’s 4th album has firmly established him as one of this generation’s great american songwriters. ‘so outta reach’ contains tracks that weren’t used for the album, with new life breathed into them, continuing the inimitable strain of strange, atmospheric beauty that marks the writing on ‘smoke ring’. the ep also includes a unique take on bruce springsteen’s ‘downbound train’. "a meditative set of hypnotic pop with a folk heart" – mojo "he's becoming the artist he deserves to be" - wire.
