Vetiver is a San Francisco band consisting of frontman and cheif songwriter Andy Cabic, accompanied by Devendra Banhart, Alissa Anderson, and Jim Gaylord. I confess I didn't know much about the band, but when I heard the tracks below I knew it was an absolutley a must have. I downloaded it from here and was I right. What a gem!!!
They have released tracks on samplers and what not, but finally released the full length album in 2004 and are currently wrapping up the mixing of their latest endevour. They released the Between EP earlier this year and I can't wait to hear what's next. Check out their website here. You can order through Midheaven or download here or here. Enjoy two tracks from their S/T debut and one from the the EP.
