First Listen: Vetiver's Thing of the Past, Including original songs round-up comp

Photo (c) Alissa Anderson

The release of Vetiver’s new album “Thing of the Past” is a week away but you can get your first listen of it today on Naturalismo. The collection of songs featured on the new all covers album doesn’t just cover the proven classic ground that many covers albums often wander into but also treads into the more obscure on tracks such as Dia Joyce’s “Sleep a Million Years”. I’ve also done my best to collect all of the original songs here in one place for you all to download. Now you can allow yourself to get familiar with the artists and their songs before you hear Andy Cabic’s wonderful recompositions of them. I’ve heard scattered rumours that the entire original collection may be released as a full album next year so I have to leave some of the original songs for the hunters or possibly forthcoming official comp. P.S. if you find the original songs that I haven’t posted please send them in because they were impossible to find. ALSO: Stay tuned for a full video interview with Vetiver, we’re filming tonight in L.A. and should have it up by Monday.

First listen (No officially released single yet = here’s a roundup of links to other blogs with them):

Vetiver – Houses

Vetiver – Road to Ronderlin

Vetiver – Blue Driver

  5. […] the meantime, check out Vetiver’s newest collection of cover songs, Thing of the Past, and definitely check them out on tour this spring. Posted by =tyler= Filed in andy cabic, […]

  6. Derroll Adams’ “The Sky” is not one of the covers. I would love to hear a copy of Ronnie Lane doing “Roll On Babe” (a Derroll Adams’ cover). Any luck with any of the other originals?

  7. Oh man, so long ago I downloaded Derroll Adam’s “the sky” off of here and my machine crashed! I can’t find that version anywhere!
