Watch Kurt Vile teach you how to avoid parking tickets in video for new song ‘Loading Zones’

A perfect jam for a summer evening

Kurt Vile has released a brand new track and video for ‘Loading Zones’, a low-key summertime jam befitting of Vile’s slacker aesthetic.

‘Loading Zones’ is Vile’s first solo material since 2015’s ‘b’lieve I’m goin down…’, and his first piece of new music since his collaborative album with Courtney Barnett, ‘Lotta Sea Lice’, which came out last year.

‘Loading Zones’ is a typically twangy track from Vile, and its accompanying video – which has also been released today (August 16) – was shot in Vile’s hometown of Philadelphia.


Directed by Drew Saracco, it features Pissed Jeans frontman Matt Korvette and actor Kevin Corrigan as parking attendants who attempt to apprehend Vile as he drives around his home city in a vintage Maserati.

Check out the new track and video from Vile below.

Kurt Vile recently joined Yo La Tengo on stage in Philadelphia to help them perform a cover of The Cure.

Vile is heading out on a UK tour later this year. It’ll be Vile’s first time back on European soil since he toured with The Violators back in 2016.
