Vetiver Bring New Music to The Bowery Ballroom Tomorrow NightMay 12th, 2015
Andy Cabic (vocals and guitar) formed the pastoral folk-rock group Vetiver (above, performing “Wonder Why” for KEXP FM) in San Francisco more than a decade ago, combining disparate influences from Syd Barrett to ’70s folk troubadours. Their self-titled debut full-length (stream it below) came out in 2004, impressing fans and critics alike. “This is an impressive, summery debut that is worth not only seeking out,” according to AllMusic, “but also playing until you can whistle along to it.” The band recently released their six studio album, the synths-inflected Complete Strangers (stream it below). Per Consequence of Sound, “Like all Vetiver albums, this one also navigates some thorny emotional terrain…. Complete Strangers is a subtle album that feels immediately familiar, yet reveals fresh and unexpected elements with each new listen.” Catch them live tomorrow night at The Bowery Ballroom. And arrive early to see Fruit Bats’ Eric D. Johnson, who opens the show.
