Back in March, when few people were paying attention, Bay Area collective Vetiver released one of the year’s loveliest albums. Seven records into a career, most bands have a formula down, but too many rehash old moves to diminishing effect. Complete Strangers won’t upend anyone’s expectations about the Bay’s indie-folk scene; it’s just that everything comes together so nicely: Andy Cabic’s translucent vocals, the spiraling rhythms, the chiming guitars, and the subtle brass touches that recall such seemingly divergent acts as the Byrds and Stan Getz and João Gilberto. It’s the Platonic ideal of the Summer Record. Granted, it gets a little sleepy at times—like a nap on a gently swaying hammock—but there are no sharp edges to wreck your flow; just soft, cottony bliss. KATHY FENNESSY
