After a 3-year gap since their last album, SF-based indie-folk group Vetiver released their new LP Complete Strangers, including this track titled “Confiding”. Lead singer/songwriter Andy Cabic remarked about the album’s songs:
“They share things in common but come from different places, different times… As with many of Vetiver’s better moments, sunshine is only a chord away from melancholy. An introspective lyric underlies an extroverted chorus. Subtlety tries to be outgoing, loneliness familiar, in an effort to connect the dots of life’s ellipsis.” –Andy Cabic of Vetiver
Com Truise is one of the many personas of producer and designer Seth Haley, born and raised in upstate New York and operating out of a 12’-overrun apartment in Princeton, New Jersey. An admitted synth obsessive, Com Truise is the maker of an experimental and bottom heavy style he calls “mid-fi synth-wave, slow-motion funk”.

The stories on the album come naturally, with language that is more often felt than understood. That’s because Cabic let the music be his master, listening to demos and walking around his neighborhood waiting for the lyrics to emerge organically around a line or cadence.
Scott Weaver’s amazing piece, made with over 100,000 toothpicks over the course of 35 years, is a depiction of San Francisco, with multiple ball runs that allow you to go on “tours” of different parts of the city. It will be on display in the Tinkering Studio until the end of June!
