4.0 out of 5 stars One For The Summer 15 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD
Top marks to Bella Union for putting one of The Errant Charm's standout tracks, "Can't You Tell" on their site recently. I'd never even heard of Vetiver before, but played the track non-stop for days with a smile on my face... and was it just me or did the weather seem sunnier as a result?
The album itself delivers more in a similar vein but throws in a few twists here and there with the rockier "Ride Ride Ride" and the ultra low-fi "Faint Praise", the latter being one of my favourite tracks of 2011 (so far).
It doesn't quite get a 5-star rating as a couple of the tracks are a little under-whelming, but I wouldn't be surprised if these grow on me through the summer as this album will be getting a lot of air-play.

This is a fantastic new album from Vetiver - it will work for anyone who likes 'modern-retro' guitar sounds such as Will Oldham, Bon Iver, The Coral, Fleet Foxes, The Bees, Gruff Rhys, SFA, Devendra Banhart, and their influences - The Byrds, Neil Young, Velvets etc. But it also has it's hazier "shoegaze" moments that remind me of music like Engineers or early Verve. This is a very dreamy album, less traditionally folky than previous efforts but has lush harmonies and a groove and is right up there with anything else released this year.

And in fact is well ahead of Bon Iver's new album to be honest...

5.0 out of 5 stars My new album of the summer 2! 14 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD
More beautiful tunes and atmospherics to complement a perfect summer. The Errant Charm finds Vetiver at the top of their game, with a new sound that permeates and unifies the whole album. It's a record that will stay with you and make you miss it if you leave it at home. Andy Cabic and co. are the hidden gems of Sub Pop/Bella Union. Buy now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Effusive. 10 Aug 2011
By Kevin Dyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This recording has a collective grasp on everything we want from music--it soars and shifts like the wind--just listen to "Can't You Tell" and see (hear) if you can listen to it just once. It pulls you in, along with a great number of other cuts on the lp, and oftentimes, despite my mood, I end up in a shimmer. Great stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great CD 12 Sep 2011
By Brian Yates - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The new Vetiver CD The Errant Charm is a very chilled out version of some of their earlier work... except for one or two tracks it's missing some of the more upbeat songs you saw in earlier albums. All in all it's a great album to just hang out with, drive around, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vetiver's best record 22 Dec 2013
By UWSMusic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It took a bunch of listens to realize that this is vetiver's best album, and that is saying a lot, since they have a few great ones. So many great tracks with those subtle hooks, great melodies, vocal qualities.... It NEVER gets tired. I have listened to it like 50 times and it doesn't tire at all. Get it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Group for All Ages 2 Feb 2013

A few years ago someone gave me one of Vertivers debut CD. I waited for awhile to listen to it but I was hooked from that day forward. Every Album I own of theirs gets play time. This album is great from start to finish. I can put this CD on and play it and not have the feeling to jump tracks. It has a fresh romantic sound that works great for any number of occasions. I have a few favorite cuts on the album, but honestly if I'm in the mood to listen to it, it's all good.

A Euphoric, uplifting kind of record, puts you in a good mood and never let go.
Lay on the beach and put the headphones on and I guarantee total bliss.
Indeed the summer record of the year.
Highly recommended.
