4.0 out of 5 stars One For The Summer, 15 Jun 2011
This review is from: The Errant Charm (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.

5.0 out of 5 stars California Folksters go Shoegazing (well, almost), 15 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Errant Charm (Audio CD)
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...

This review is from: The Errant Charm (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!
