Kurt Vile didn't seem the most obvious candidate to cover Nine Inch Nails' 1989 classic "Down In It," since Vile isn't usually one for sharp industrial angles. But he rose to the challenge here, adding some of his own buzzy haze to the song, accompanied by a diminutive keyboard and an iPod. It doesn't sound like anything on Vile's recent Wakin On A Pretty Daze, but nonetheless might provide a good introduction to what he's all about. (Or you could just try Smoke Ring For My Halo.) Enjoy.
