  • This week's RTRFM Feature album is 'Bottle It In' by @kurtvile 
Following up 2015’s 'B'lieve I'm Goin Down...', an album that saw him perfectly mixing witty musings with a straight-up alt-country influenced rock & roll, Kurt Vile returns after 3 years, with his seventh solo studio album, Bottle It In. Building on his classic inherent playfulness coupled with his organic musicality, Vile ensures listeners remain entranced through looping arrangements, while managing to simultaneously keep you on your toes. Elements of folk, country and new wave all weave in-and-out of the album's 13 tracks of head-nod inducing alternative rock & roll. Lyrically, Vile tackles relationships, family and tales of travel, all in a roguish, relatable manner. With his richly evocative take on the often mundane aspects of day-to-day life, packaged as earworm after earworm, Vile proves it can indeed be a good thing to Bottle It In.

This is Cherie Carlo, better known as The Whipcracker, and she’s amazing. She’s been a part of @rtrfm for 15 years now and is the longest running office volunteer at the station. She’s also a die hard house music fan. This is a photo I took of her for the 40 Years of RTRFM exhibition last year. We had @willyslade ‘s Full Frequency show cranking at the time which she specifically requested for the shoot. What a legend! :)
