Indefinite Hiatus

I am saddened to say that I will have to put my blog on an indefinite hiatus due to the fact that I currently have more than I can handle on my plate. I want to thank everyone that has ever visited this blog. I hope I have pleasured your eardrums.

You may continue to follow me on Twitter, where I will still post song recommendations and links to any other cool music related news/songs/etc. I will also continue to be a guest-blogger on Pretty Much Amazing! The Music Blog.

Vetiver - Everyday

Everyday I'm away from you
Shakes me up inside

Vetiver dropped their 4th LP yesterday--Tight Knit. What initially interested me about the band was that Devendra Banhart appears on some of their songs. And since I love Devendra I thought I might like Vetiver as well. Turns out I do like Vetiver but it's still Devendra FTW!

Vetiver is the brainchild of the singer/songwriter Andy Cabic. Raised in northern Virginia, Cabic eventually moved to N. Carolina where he met future band members. After moving to San Francisco he began to recruit the likes of Devendra and Joanna Newsom to record the self titled debut album. In 2004 he also helped Devendra co-write "At the Hop" off Rejoicing in the Hands.

"Everyday" is the first single off their latest album. The album prior to this was a compilation of cover songs from the '60s and '70s. The songs on Tight Knit reflect Cabic's love for these eras. In fact, he is due to produce Vashti Bunyan's (the so called "God Mother of Freak Folk") next album.

Favorite Part: The very dreamy & happy feel the song has to it.
