Vetiver's warm '70s folk sound seems a perfect fit for an afternoon in the woods, which is where the group happened to play during Pickathon last summer. San Franciscan Andy Cabic has led the band for more than a decade, during which he's written appealing songs like the blissful "Current Carry," which appears on the group's latest album, Complete Strangers. Fruit Bats' Eric D. Johnson joins Vetiver on keys for this performance at the natural amphitheater under the trees.
This premiere kicks off the spring season of releases from the Pickathon Woods Stage. Each month until this summer's festival, we'll premiere another video from the woods. Look for the next one on April 19.
Pickathon also announced its full festival schedule today on its website, with Jeff Tweedy, Beach House, Yo La Tengo and others set to play multiple sets through the weekend festival, held August 5-7 at Pendarvis Farm outside Portland.
