Vetiver musical being is like many curious musicians shaped and sustained by divergent tangents. If Andy Cabic is not crafting a melancholy folk-rock diamond in his Northern California studio, he’s moving a dance floor with bossanova and house DJ sets, or helping curate a compilation of Japanese City Pop. “Up On High” was written on acoustic guitar, the album reflects the world that Cabic created and lives in. “How do you explain that you’re leaving again? Not even that you want to, but that you have to? Hearing playback of the basics we recorded live bass, drums, acoustic guitar, scratch vocal… proved that this fundamental approach was the core of what would work for these songs.” -Andy Cabic
