"After making their slickest, most easily digestible record to date with 2009’s Tight Knit, Vetiver didn’t turn back to their hazy, rustically psychedelic roots. On the contrary, Andy Cabic and his band took another big step in the direction of radio-ready pop/rock with 2011’s The Errant Charm. Together with longtime producer/collaborator Thom Monahan, Cabic created a completely smooth, totally air-tight sound that could have sounded joyless -- all layered guitars, shimmering keyboards, Tom Petty drums, and lush vocal harmonies -- but turns out to be a wonderfully sweet and pleasant listening experience instead. Framed by a long midtempo classic rock jam at the beginning and two subdued and beautiful ballads at the close, the rest of the record is a bubblegummy, hooky treat. Made up of songs that jangle and bubble, croon and coo, it’s like a seven-song master class on how to make a guitar pop record that looks backwards (to folk-rock, sunshine pop, country-rock, '80s radio pop) but sounds completely modern." --AllMusic
TUNE-YARDS

“tUnE-yArDs is the singular musical project of New England native Merrill Garbus. Possessing an expansive sound that marries a coarse folk ingenuity with the bold pop sensibility of an R&B siren, BiRd-BrAiNs was assembled with a staunch DIY aesthetic. Recording herself using a digital voice recorder and assembled using shareware mixing software, she was described by Stereogum as “a self-contained Sublime Frequencies compilation, jumping between blues, African tunes, shiny reggae-esque sprawls, and lo-fi folk”, infusing the worldly sonic palette of M.I.A. or post-punk pioneers The Raincoats.”
Extra Classic

Dubby psychedelic rock from SF outfit.

"Our girl Dri, who we featured in FADER #51, is back with her smoky ghost-voice. Only, instead of applying it to lilting, gauzy electronic pop, she’s now fronting a straight rootsy dub band called Extra Classic that is apparently based in her dual homes of San Francisco and Lawrence, Kansas. Her singing on this single is lovely and the bass is jamming and according to their MySpace, it is recorded all in analogue." --Fader
