Editors’ Notes

With each ensuing album, Vetiver tighten up their sound and prove themselves ever more radio-ready for a soft-country-folk station that still plays the best in early-‘70s Laurel Canyon music. The smooth, layered sound of “Hard to Break” sounds like a mix of the Eagles and America, where a Southwestern sundown is implied in the gentle lope and the carefully crafted backing vocals. Producer Thom Monahan brings his experience with the Pernice Brothers to full effect. Singer and leader Andy Cabic keeps things soothing throughout, with vocals that float in the middle of the mix. “Fog Emotion,” “Right Away” and “Soft Glass” drift to sea with genuine warmth. “Wonder Why” adds a shimmering guitar and Beach Boys harmonies. “Ride Ride Ride” throws in a choogling Creedence Clearwater Revivial rhythm. Cabic and crew keep getting better.

Customer Reviews

80 Degrees, Mostly Sunny

Im gonna do a little smokin and do a little swimmin. This is a great album to let your gaurd down and just relax. Put on your shades, get your favorite icey drink, put your feet up. You deserve it.


First album I've set aside time to listen to from beginning to end in a long long time. Very chill, but never gets too dull or drawn out. Very beautiful and intriguing music. I would love to see these guys live. "Can't You Tell" and "Soft Grass" are among my favorites, but there really isn't anything that isn't good on this album. Well done.

so much errant charm

they've really struck gold this time. keep it up boys.

When Vetiver released their first album in 2004, they were commonly lumped into the nascent "freak folk" movement alongside the likes of Joanna Newsom and Six Organs of Admittance, thanks to leader Andy Cabic's friendship with scene founder Devendra Banhart. (In addition to Banhart's musical contributions to Vetiver's first two albums, Cabic co-wrote Banhart's breakout song "At the Hop," which appeared on 2004's Rejoicing in the Hands; on the same album, Banhart paid tribute to his friend's band...
