New Vetiver Album is "A Thing of the Past"

Ahhh, isn’t it great working on a national holiday? Isn’t it great writing for a blog on a workday? Yes! Especially on a day like today, when Andy Cabic announced the full tracklist for Vetiver’s upcoming all-covers LP A Thing of the Past. And mark your calendars (aside from “don’t die” on December 31, mine is pretty barren anyway): because the album, which features guest appearances by Michael Hurley and Vashti Bunyan, is dropping sometime in May. So just circle the entire month of May on your calendar and write “Vetiver” in red Sharpie.
A Thing of the Past (songwriters in brackets):
Houses [Elyse Weinberg]
Roll on Babe [Derroll Adams]
Sleep a Million Years [Dia Joyce]
Hook & Ladder [Norman Greenbaum]
To Baby [Biff Rose]
Road to Ronderlin [Ian Matthews]
Lon Chaney [Garland Jeffreys]
Hurry on Sundown [Dave Brock, Hawkwind]
Swimming Song [Loudon Wainwright III]
Blue Driver [Michael Hurley]
Standing [Towns Van Zandt]
I Must Be in a Good Place Now [Bobby Charles]
