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.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
