Vetiver - "Can't You Tell"

Sub Pop has released the first single from Vetiver's forthcoming fifth album, The Errant Charm, due out on June 14th. "Can't You Tell," the third track off the album, commences with a solo reverb-backed organ and proceeds to open up with a wide spectrum of sounds, some of which come as a surprise to the Vetiverse. While the acoustic guitar is a staple of Andy Cabic's recording, the track's drum loop and swirling backdrop of effected keyboards are unfamiliar additions to the usual acoustic instrument-oriented production. Cabic wrote much of The Errant Charm's songs while walking the streets of San Francisco and the hazy and lightly psychedelic "Can't You Tell" fits nicely into that backstory, operating with a movement both casual and unhurried.
