The Covalent Bond

This site is dedicated to the sharing of ideas in the field of music, literature, and whatever else strikes my fancy. To play the music, you must have Rhapsody. I am just getting started. There will be more to come. "Imagination is more important than knowledge." -- Albert Einstein

Song of the Day - July 3, 2006

Vetiver is a type of grass that essential oils are extracted from for aromatherapy. It also goes by the alias Oil of Tranquility. Vetiver, the San Francisco based band, produces music of a tranquil nature, though they do have rare transgressions of a more agitated state. Their latest opus To Find Me Gone spends the majority of its time floating in the Sea of Tranquility. However, the track "Lost & Found" straddles the line between outright calmness and agitation. Their psych-folk tendencies are in full evidence as the song begins with soothing acoustic guitar and Andy Cabic's vocals, before launching into a galloping beat augmented with a wailing electric guitar.

Note, Rhapsody has since removed "Lost & Found." As a result I have substituted the fine track "You May Be Blue" for song of the day honors. Click here to listen.
