Tight Knit is Vetiver’s fourth album, but it’s their first appearance in my music collection. San Francisco singer-songwriter Andy Cabic is the soul of the band that plays gently strummed, breezy acoustic songs perfect for a beach day along the Bay. While the slower tracks like “Rolling Sea” and “Through The Front Door” are the perfect soundtrack for afternoon naps, Vetiver shines in their uptempo sunny pop gems like “Everyday,” “More Of This” and “Another Reason To Go.” The album is subtle, but if you’re patient, you’ll find really good stuff in the nooks and crannies.
Tight Knit was just released on February 17th via Sub Pop Records...so go get it!!
