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...
