Kim Gordon Interviews Kindred Spirit Kurt Vile

performs onstage during day 3 of the 2013 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival at the Empire Polo Club on April 14, 2013 in Indio, California

It has been quite the several weeks of musician-to-musician interviews: first Julian Casablancas and Dev Hynes interviewed each other for Oyster, and now Kurt Vile (whose new album, b’lieve i’m goin’ down…, arrives this week) and Kim Gordon have done the same for Dazed.

Creative minds do tend to wander, and as such, the Q&A is all over the place in the most wonderful way possible. Vile discusses day-drinking (“I would do weird things like drink wine in the middle of the day and sort of stagger around”), Gordon talks about b’lieve i’m goin down… (“I like the way you spit lines and make it work. I don’t mean that in an emo way!”), and their interaction is overall pretty charming. Head on over to Dazed to read the whole thing.
