    It’s a sprawling, sublime collection which rivals B’lieve in the context of Vile’s largely unimpeachable discography.

    With (watch my moves), Kurt Vile possibly creates indie rock's first ambient masterwork, a piece of art that is surprisingly and lovingly languid, even for the king of slack.

    He’s “hip” to everything, but seeking his own brand of freedom, and his ability to connect with so many different influences and filter it all through his own matrix and have it come out like a concoction that is an extension of his person is a sublime artistic gift indeed.
  4. Apr 15, 2022
    (watch my moves) finds Vile connecting with his friends and idols alike, but more than anything, it finds him staying connected to himself—his identity as an artist.
  5. Apr 15, 2022
    The deeper Vile gets into his career, the more his creative process seems to blend with the results.
  6. Apr 13, 2022
    He stretches out and gets comfortable on his loosey-goosiest jams to date, handing out 74 minutes of mellow wisdom off the dome. He’s wisely stopped searching for the next level up, focusing instead on the beautifully unfocused be-here-now beatitude that’s always been his greatest gift.
  7. Apr 12, 2022
    He doesn’t bring his roguish charm to his latest. Though this album will satisfy those nostalgic for the mellower side of ‘70s and ‘90s rock, it doesn’t chart new terrain for Vile.

    Better than his previous record. This is more concisely written and recorded. A good listening experience with experimental elements notBetter than his previous record.
