Kurt Vile 'Squidbillies' Theme Song
Published Jul 13, 2016Along with updating us on the decidedly disturbing family lives of the inky Cuyler clan, the new season of Adult Swim cartoon Squidbillies is offering up a bunch of versions of its downtrodden and rootsy theme song. Following last week's full-band extravaganza with Father John Misty, Philly folk guy Kurt Vile has revealed a modest version of his own.
Following the template, Vile affixed a country drawl onto those now-familiar lines about the death of dreams and praying for the sun to explode. His finger-picked version is crystalline, despite the content being about as murky as a bucket full of masticated chaw.
You can hear Vile's Squidbillies take below, along with a behind-the-scenes look at how he put it together.
