From his Wakin on a Pretty Daze album, Kurt Vile has released this music video for “KV Crimes,” directed by Tom Scharpling. The video has Vile being paraded around Philadelphia and being worshipped like the Philly king he is.
His label, Matador, notes that August 28 will be officially Kurt Vile Day in Philly, which has been officially named by the city’s mayor. Kurt Vile will be presented a Liberty Bell Award on August 28. Matador describes the award as “the highest honor the City can bestow upon one of its citizens… given only to native Philadelphians, and presented in recognition of outstanding professional achievements and civic generosity.”
