smoke ring for my halo' was recorded by john agnello (sonic youth, dinosaur jr.) throughout 2010 at various studios in nyc, hoboken and philadelphia. it's the second kurt vile full-length for matador and is easily his most ambitious work to date. assisted by a cast including but not limited to the violators, 'smoke ring' doesn't merely showcase kurt's versatility (keep in mind, this is a guy who was once compared to leonard cohen, psychic tv, tom petty and animal collective - in the same review), but truly ties otherwise disparate elements together in a way that hopefully causes everyone to seriously re-evaluate the very nature of what they consider to be a classic album
