New Vetiver

It's probably too early to write about this, but I love Andy CAbic's Vetiver, and they(he mostly) keep getting better and better. There's a new album called Errant Charm coming out in mid-June on Sub Pop and it is, I think, the best thing Vetiver's ever done, which is saying quite a lot. It's less folk and more pop than Vetiver was in the beginning, though that's more of a continuation than a break at this point. It also has a really nice kind of Brazilian lightness in its rhythms...love this song which is called "Can't You Tell," though it's the opening track, "Worse for Wear" that destroys me every time.

Beautiful stuff.

And a live version of "You May Be Blue" from a few years back.

Look I got through an entire post on Vetiver without even mentioning Devendra Banhart.
