In 2009, Kurt Vile released his critically-acclaimed third studio album, Childish Prodigy, through Matador Records. Earlier that year, however, the shaggy-haired songwriter, alongside his Violators, dropped a limited pressing of The Hunchback EP to little or no fanfare.
This week, the Philadelphia-based Richie Records and TestosterTunes will reissue the EP on vinyl. The pressing comes with a download of six live bonus tracks taken from a 2011 Atlanta performance that marked the final appearance of the original Violators roster featuring War On Drugs founder Adam Granduciel. One gem out of the bunch is a warped, nine-minute rendition of “Freak Train” featuring Deerhunter‘s own Bradford Cox, which can be streamed below (via Pitchfork).
