- "Hotel Riverview"
With full beards, long hair and headbands, the band VietNam resembles a gang of hippie drifters living in a '60s time warp. But the group rocks fiercely and uniquely, incorporating a distinct style of psychedelic, folk-inspired music that's built on a foundation of personal, thoughtful songwriting.
The band began as the duo of Michael William and Joshua Garrett, who founded VietNam in an effort to craft a style they believed hadn't been heard before. VietNam still relies primarily on live shows and word of mouth, but major press and a pair of high-profile tour-mates (The Lemonheads and Jenny Lewis) have helped increase its mainstream exposure.
