Show Post: In House #1455
Somewhere along the way and intentionally or not, Devendra Banhart has parlayed a bedroom recording hobby into being the symbol of an entire musical movement. "Freak Folk" it's been labeled, and along with like-minded artists like Joanna Newsom, Animal Collective, Vetiver and others, Banhart has helped to create popularity for a most unexpected niche. His new album, Cripple Crow, showcases his talent for incorporating influences as far reaching as The Incredible String Band, flamenco music and even a dash of Tiny Tim into his own neo-psychedelic blend.
In House #1455.
Focus: New release from Devendra Banhart, Cripple Crow, plus new music from The Yonder Mountain String Band, Smog, Silver Jews and more.
