A month before the release of his excellent 2018 album Bottle It In, Kurt Vile retreated to the Catskills in Upstate New York for a weekend of solace. Residing in a 20-bedroom Victorian estate called Big Indian Springs, Vile spent time preparing for the record’s release and rehearsing for an extensive tour.
A year later, Matador Records has released (bottle back), a mini-documentary that captures the Philly songwriter’s peaceful stint in the mountains. “This was the perfect lost weekend,” Vile told Rolling Stone at the time. “I’m ready to grab life by the balls.” (Source: Rolling Stone)
