Vetiver @ Tonic

Vetiver's new album "To find Me Gone" has been one of my most listened to albums this year. Andy Cabic's song writing has fully matured since their first album. The songs have such a beautiful lonesome quality. The music is a mix between country, blues, and folk. At time the sound resembles the Band, The Incredible String Band, and the Grateful Dead.
Last night Vetiver played an amazing set at Tonic. Andy has spent a lot of time performing in Devendra Banhart band and you can tell he is very comfortable on the stage. But where Dev's recent shows lack some professional qualities Andy is all business. The band was tight, and the music rocking. The band set lasted for about an hour and a half. The set featured material from both albums and a few covers. Vetiver will be on tour for the rest of the summer and I strongly suggest you get out and see them.

i like vetiver. i found their performance a little boring , not much variation on the songs,etc.

but it was also hot and uncomfortable where I sound them, sound fix

if you think their album is good, you have to hear Espers II and the new grizzly bear yellowhouse album

both fucking blow my mind
also hear some leaked Diane Cluck who is rad
