Thing of the Present: Vetiver


I know my first Vetiver post was probably poorly timed, considering its proximity to the release of their new record Thing of the Past, but I'm going to tell you about this one as well.

Thing is a labor of love, an album of covers that you'd never know were covers unless someone told you they were covers. Woven together with intentionally frayed edges and playful unravelings and somehow resulting in a heartfelt almost-live folk album guaranteed to spread some light into your darker corners. You're a dusty rug hanging on a clothesline. Vetiver is the breeze, the sun, the broomstick that's going to beat you clean again.

Listen:
the Swimming Song (Loudon Wainwright III)
Road to Ronderlin (Ian Matthews)
[from Thing of the Past|buy]
