You May Be Blue
For some inexplicable reason, I've slept on the new Vetiver record until a few days ago, despite hearing nothing but good things about it. I actually stumbled upon To Find Me Gone while browsing the new emusic releases, and it was definitely one of the pleasant surprises of the year thus far for me.

This record strays from the psych-folk realm and leans heavily on the dreamy, '70s-era CSNY/Joni Mitchell West Coast rock that is apparently enjoying a welcome resurgence right now (see Midlake's The Trials of Van Occupanther). Cabic is obviously a huge fan of early Fleetwood Mac, as evidenced on this amazing song:
