Video Premiere: Kurt Vile’s “Jesus Fever”

You can take Kurt Vile out of Philadelphia, but as the video for “Jesus Fever” leads us to believe — you can’t take the Philly out of Kurt. As music fans become more aware of Vile’s subtle, yet masterful guitar work via his acclaimed fourth LP Smoke Ring For My Halo, the song “Jesus Fever” stands out as one of the more poignant moments of the record. His voice is tender yet firm as he narrates the inner monologue of someone who’s wandering, and in this video, Vile’s long hair and nomadic spirit translates to what an apparition of “Jesus Fever” would look like.
