Get ready for another fine chapter in the evolution of Vetiver. Andy Cabic keeps cranking out the tunes like there's no tomorrow. This hooks you fast with the first track, Rolling Sea, slides nicely into my next favorite track, Sister, and doesn't let up much after that. Cabic even mixes in a little funkadelic number with Another Reason to Go that's a bit of a departure for these guys, but doesn't disappoint. Seems it's been only a few short months since we last heard from the band and now this. Vetiver in only a couple of years has become this middle-aged engineer geek's favorite sound. Enjoy.

Andy Cabic, Vetiver's singer-songwriter, hit writers block after the band's (excellent) second album, "To Find Me Gone" (2006). Unltimately he decided to abandon his seemingly fruitless efforts to come up with new and original material and instead decided to do an all-covers album. That album, last year's "Thing of the Past", turned out to be quite the treat as well (with such surprises as a cover of Hawkwind's "Hurry On Sundown"). Now then comes finally the new alsum with all original material.

"Tight Knit" (10 tracks; 42 min.) is a mood album from start to finish. The album's openner "Rolling Sea" sets the tone, with cabic's acoustic guitar providing the opening sounds. "Everyday" is as poppy as the album gets, and I can easily see it being used in some creative way for a commercial of some sort. "Down From Above" is a dreamy piece with just Cabic providing the guitar and keyboard sounds, it's one of my favorite tracks onhere. "Another Reason To Go" is perhaps the most surprising track on here, with even various wind instruments (Clavinet, trumpet, trombone) featured prominently, but somehow it all sounds great. It's clear that Andy Cabic has rediscovered his muse!

While this is as far out of the mainstream commercial music as you will find in the indie-rock-folk scene, this album is nevertheless easily accessible and listenable. It pleases the ears from the first to the last sounds, period. A very nice addition to the Vetiver catalog. If you wonder where you can hear these guys, check out WOXY (BAM! The Future of Rock and Roll), the internet-only station that bring sthe best indie-music in the country, bar none. Meanwhile, "Tight Knit" is highly recommended!

Very nice album, but at first I wasn't as knocked out as I had hoped. I really enjoyed the band's covers album, "Thing of the Past," so I had high hopes for this one too. To be honest, it took a long time to grow on me. But that's always one of the qualities of really good music; it grows on you. There are definite subtle elements to these songs that do require full immersion and repeated listenings. The music has more folk elements than traditional rock. Give this one a chance, and you may find yourself liking it a lot.
