Zum Wochenende erscheint Complete Strangers – das neue Album der Folk-Band VETIVER aus L.A.. Exklusiv für Popmonitor haben die Amerikaner ihre neuen Songs kommentiert…
An auspicious debut: the first appearance of saxophone and fretless bass on a Vetiver song. What took so long?
FROM NOW ON
A circle of a song and an interruption, inspired by Skeeter Davis. My favorite song on the album.
The only song here written in one sitting. A simple tune about uncertainty. Thom says the ending reminds him of „The Long Run“.
Otto makes an appearance! I like when songs take off at the end and make you wait for it. The melodies you sing while you’re hitchhiking.
I was raised on jangle. My weak attempt to play a lead like John Perry.
For getting lost in the city at night. Arrangements inspired by Nick DeCaro.
TIME FLIES BY
A misunderstanding. The sound of time unravelling. Feels like looking people in the eye and knowing they don’t expect much out of you.
Another bummer for the summer.
