The Errant Charm, the latest album from Vetiver, finds the San Francisco folkies opening up their sound while staying true to the mellow, emotionally subtle tone of their previous work. The group sounds remarkably confident and at ease as they venture out of their comfort zone, embracing chiming country rock guitar leads on "Wonder Why" and "Hard to Break," shuffling organ-driven rock on "Ride Ride Ride" and crisp beats on the standout tracks "Can't You Tell" and "Fog Emotion." The Errant Charm will hit stores on June 14th, but you can stream it in its entirety now and pre-order the album from Amazon or iTunes.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
