Prick Tunes: Kurt Vile "Baby's Arms"

Former member of The War on Drugs, Kurt Vile has set off on his own with two DIY solo records (an LP and a mini-album) that were released on very small labels before latching on to Matador's wagon to release Childish Prodigy in 2009 and Smoke Ring for My Halo in 2011.
Coming off the latter of the two Matador releases, "Baby's Arms" is a pretty traditional love song. This is somewhat atypical for Vile, whose catalog isn't nearly as sweet and sincere as this, but the sincerity rings true. It opens Smoke Ring well and sets the hook in the listener.
