Vetiver, Quiet Life and Great Wilderness


Star Theater (map) Downtown
Wed., Sept. 28, 9 p.m. 2011 21+


Years back, as a fresh-faced man in my 20s, I loathed Vetiver. It was unfair and reactionary, but after witnessing the band play onstage I grew restless and that boredom manifested itself in a slow simmering (and misplaced) hatred. They were guilty of associating with Devendra Banhart, leaning too heavily on American Beauty-era Dead, and just being the wrong band at the absolute wrong time. But I've aged, as has Vetiver, and now my hunger for new music from Andy Cabic & Co. has reached an insatiable level. This year's The Errant Charm is subtle yet expansive, an album loaded with deep emotionalism yet simple in structure and pleasant on the ears. I take little pride in arriving at Vetiver fandom so late, but now that I'm here and listening to The Errant Charm once again, there isn't anywhere I'd rather be. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
