Next week Vetiver release their fifth album, The Errant Charm, on Sub Pop Records. We first became aware of them after hearing a copy of Thing Of The Past, their album of twelve beautifully done cover songs. Since then we’ve gobbled up everything by them that has come our way and 2009’s Tight Knit album was a particular favourite of that year.
Straddling gentle sunshine country rock to freak(ish) folk and ethereal dream-pop the band are masters of their instruments and their destiny. Vintage keyboards mix with ambient washes and jangly guitars; upbeat toe-tappers sit side by side with understated acoustic pop and the result is quite lovely.
