Vetiver, 'Tight Knit' (Sub Pop)

7
Tight Knit
Critical Mass
Label: Sub Pop

by Jessica Suarez

Vetiver's music sounds like it was written in midday sunshine, yet longs for a dark bedroom in the dead of night. Andy Cabic's balmy folk songs pull from pert shades of doo-wop ("Everyday") and Latin syncopation ("Strictly Rule").But his whispery voice can take on a Donovan-like sultriness, making a song such as "Sister" far sexier than a song named "Sister" should be. Maybe Cabic has taken a cue from former Vetiver collaborator and babe magnet Devendra Banhart: Being laid-back ain't that far from laying right down.
