“Hopefully I just get a little more fine-tuned and a little more real and vulnerable all the time. I think the main thing I tried to achieve on this record—which I did, and part of it was not having a producer there the whole time—was just to just be myself without being nervous because there’s a million nice mics and four assistants around waiting for me to capture that song that I wrote on my couch while I was feeling up or down. You’re almost performing it from a stage, as opposed to really living it.” – Kurt Vile
