Sixth studio album from Pennsylvania's Kurt Vile. B'lieve I'm Goin Down... was recorded and mixed in a number of locations, including Los Angeles and Joshua Tree. And it reaches across the United States, from the east coast to the west coast, right through the heart of the dust bowl. Vile has further honed his story telling and myth making skills, adding more humor than on past releases. However, B'lieve I'm Goin Down... is a darker record than its more lighthearted predecessor, Wakin On A Pretty Daze. He brings in more elements that seem to quiet things down a bit, as well. For all the capital R rock that might be missing, there is plenty of variety to be had and tales to get lost in. Includes the songs: "That's Life, tho (almost hate to say)," "I'm an Outlaw," "Pretty Pimpin," and "Life Like This." Twelve tracks in all. Released by Matador on double vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with a download code.
