Fruit Bats & Vetiver - In Real Life: Live at Spacebomb Studios LPSpacebomb Records
Eric D. Johnson and Andy Cabic have a lot in common. Two kindred spirits with a common affinity for songwriting that embraces a range of feeling, strong on melodies paired with thoughtful lyrics and catchy hooks. Over the years, they've played in each other's bands (Fruit Bats and Vetiver), on one another's albums, scored films together, and toured the world with one another. In Real Life documents their musical relationship and recent duo touring as part of the ongoing Live At Spacebomb series. The unadorned simplicity of these performances captures a bit of their travels and friendship, their appreciation and respect for each other's songs, and the ease and joy of sharing the stage night after night, year after year. Johnson & Cabic each bring two fan favorites to the table. Two beloved cover songs complete the set: Bobby Charles' classic "I Must Be In A Good Place Now" and the lesser known "Nice Baby and the Angel" by David Blue. With both Fruit Bats and Vetiver ready to begin the next chapter in each of their stories, In Real Life is a time capsule, captured at a moment of synchronicity for the two musicians. They've come from separate places and their paths will part once again, but just for a moment, these two friends find themselves in the same place at the same time.
