Once a week, The Current's Music Director David Safar guides you through one hour of musical discoveries, new artists and recent releases. New Hot will be a mix of new artists, new songs from some of your current favorites and opportunities to explore what's coming up next in new music. Don't miss it!
This week on New Hot, we've got an in-studio with Kurt Vile, performing new material from his forthcoming Wakin On A Pretty Daze. Tune in to hear more new music from The Thermals, Youth Lagoon, Bleached and more.
Philly rocker Kurt Vile has been a psych-rock and folk-influenced racket for the better part of a decade now, both as a founding member of the indie-rock band The War on Drugs (which he left in 2008) and also as a solo artist.
