Devendra Banhart News

Who knew that Devendra was recording a new album? I'm sure that his friends (he has so many) knew, because they were all involved in recording it. Some just providing backing yelps, or the occasional tambourine solo. Some of them just sat around the studio, listening to the sounds that everyone else was making. I'm sure some of them quit their day-jobs just to be there. In any case, the new album will probably be just as kooky as the last. I don't know what exactly to expect, but I'm sure I will nod my head when I hear his oddly nostalgic tunes, from an era I was not alive for.

This, taken from his Myspace, may just confuse you even further:

oh , i almost forgot, we still dont have a band name, at least not one thats made it past a couple shows, if anyone has a suggestion , we would LOVE to try it out!


Whatever that means, I'm excited for it. While waiting for the Animal Collective show to start, I over heard someone from the Granada talking about just having booked him for the fall, which is exciting as well. They misspelled his name on the announcement: "Devandra Banhart". It was comical.
