Quote by:
Will Oldham

“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

Vetiver : To Find Me Gone

Limited Edition (13 tracks to the regular 11 track) Release of To Find Me Gone, Vetiver's 2nd full release on Fat-Cat. Vetiver is essentially Andy Cabic's project, but alongside Cabic, the players on this album included mainstays Devendra Banhart, Alissa Anderson, Otto Hauser (drums), and Kevin Barker (guitar).

I personally find this album a much more refined work than the S/T 2004 debut, taking all that was so good about that piece of work and honing those elements and building upon them. I believe the last two years of his duality role as singer and band mate, has allowed Cabic to takes up the reins and takes total control, knowing exactly what he wants from his music and grasping it, thus, in some ways making this the superior LP.

The regular version of the cd and a vinyl version of this release will be available on June 5th, but why wait. Go to emusic and download an advanced copy. Below is the track Busted, one of the limited edition tracks that will not be on the regular release that was on the Between EP and if it's not a Gram Parsons tribute, I don't know what is.

I have also included Won't Be Me below. I got this as a free track on emusic, although it is listed as Busted on their site, so I don't know which one was suposed to be offered. Unfortunatly, it turns out emusic has all the songs listed incorrectly. A real shame, but hey you're getting it two weeks early. And if that's still not enough, you can stream the entire album on their website.

Highly recommended!
