Vetiver: "Wonder Why" from The Errant Charm

Relatively new discovery for me, don't know how I missed this artist (leader is San Francisco-based Andy Cabic, his producer/collaborator is Thom Monahan) but happy to come across it... very well-done West Coast pop/rock in the grand tradition of such (you know all the usual suspects, if you like them, you will likely enjoy this). On Bella Union in England, Sub Pop in US.

Real good guitars, nice acoustic backing with some tasty, jangly electric solos, somewhat hushed vocals and sweet harmonies. This song, "Wonder Why" is a perfect example:

Watch the video, and check out some more music at their Sub Pop and official websites:
