New Music: Vetiver and Fruit Bats Play Bobby Charles’ “I Must Be In a Good Place Now”

There is lots of great music on WFUV, the Radio Station of Fordham University in The Bronx. And it’s all there to be reviewed at the website.

This is a bit complicated, but I think I have it right. The band Vetitver is fronted by a guy by the name of Andy Cabic. The above tune, “I Must Be in a Good Place Now” was not the one I heard at WFUV. I listened to the band there and then searched YouTube and found this great tune performed by Cavic and the principal of a band called the Fruit Bats. He is Eric D. Johnson. I believe he is on the right.

One of the two provides a brief intro to the song, which was written Bobby Charles. Charles was a New Orleans songwriter who wrote “Walking to New Orleans” (which was recorded by Fats Domino) and “See You Later, Alligator” (recorded by Bill Haley & His Comets.

I labeled this song as new music. It was, however, recorded a few years ago. I guess the best hedge is saying that Vetitver, Fruit Bats, Cavic and Johnson probably are new to most visitors to this site. I hope that isn’t patronizing and also apologize for any errors in this post.
