American folk band Vetiver, the brainchild of bandleader Andy Cabic, return in late Spring with the release of their fifth studio album The Errant Charm. Set to be released on June 13th courtesy of Bella Union, the new album is being billed as the superb soundtrack for an afternoon idyll. Cabric meditated on the album whilst wandering around the streets of San Francisco, listening to rough mixes and mulling over potential changes.
Like much of their previous work, expect plenty of sunshine and the kind of ambient arrangements which previously coaxed Joanna Newsom and Devendra Banheart to get on board with the band. The Errant Charm also sees Cabic working with producer Thom Manohan for the fifth time, and this time the two have set their stall to experiment further. Cabic didn’t arrive at Monahan’s Los Angeles studio with many completed songs, instead they started with lots of loose ideas and fleshed out the best bits.
The band are set to showcase their new material at SXSW this week, I guess us Brits will just have to wait until June rolls around before we get our first peak.
