Hear Kurt Vile and Sore Eros Drift All Over ‘Jamaica Plain’
Stream the lead track from the forthcoming EP of the same name
On November 4, Kurt Vile fans will get the chance to own a previously long-lost bit of the man’s musical past — Jamaica Plain, an EP’s worth of early-aughts collaborations between the Philly longhair and Sore Eros, a former member of the Violators. About a month ago, we were introduced to the beautifully lazy drifter “Serum,” and now we can hear the titular track. “Jamaica Plain” is a wordless piece clocking in at nearly seven minutes and including lots of mournful, sprawling, gorgeous guitar-play, plus a combination of live drums and Casiotone click. Come down from the work week with the lovely number below, via Stereogum.
