Boomkat Product Review:
As Vetiver albums have moved on over the years it's become more and more apparent that the band isn't so much a band as it is songwriter Andy Cabic with a shifting cast of co-conspirators. Having previously stood alongside Devendra Banhart, Joanna Newsom and Hope Sandoval, Cabic is now at a point where he's very much the focus of the listener's attention. Certain personnel remain fixtures: once again Espers drummer Otto Hauser provides the backbone of Vetiver's rhythm section while celebrated producer Thom Monahan is on hand to man the desk and supply what's mysteriously credited as "treatments" in the liner notes. True to Monahan's form on Devendra Banhart and Brightblack Morning Light albums the record sounds blissfully warm and analogue in essence, capturing Cabic's spirited modern twist on country and folk rock with a sympathetic ear. After the successes of Fleet Foxes and Bon Iver last year it seems timely that Vetiver's music should find some sort of crossover success with Tight Knit, and undoubtedly, this is a deeply accomplished album that's sure to hit the spot for anyone with any degree of susceptibility to classy Americana. Songs like the rambling, magnificent 'Rolling Sea' and 'Through The Front Door' are typically excellent Cabic fare and there's even a heightened pop presence thanks to the choppy, upbeat 'Everyday' and 'More Of This', but balancing out that knockabout energy, 'Down From Above' and 'At Forest Edge' suggest a more experimental, ethereal drone-folk aspect to the record that brings into play a dimension of Beatles-y, reined-in psychedelia. Highly recommended.
