DEVENDRA BANHART RELEASES "ANGELIKA" FROM UPCOMING RELEASE WHAT WILL WE BE, OUT OCTOBER 27TH
Monday, October 05, 2009
After recently releasing Baby, the first single off What Will We Be, out October 27th on Warner Brothers Records, eccentric Indie folk artist Devendra Banhart has released Angelika, the latest in new material from the upcoming release. Where Will We Be, Banhart's label debut for Warner Brothers,, was recorded in a sleepy Northern California town throughout the Spring of 2009 co-produced by Devendra and Paul Butler (from UK outfit Band Of Bees). The international media's acclaim and the size of his audience both at home and abroad earned by his debut Oh Me Oh My The Way The Day Goes By The Sun Is Setting Dogs Are Dreaming Lovesongs Of The Christmas Spirit was impressive to begin with and has increased dramatically with each subsequent release.
The track was premiered on Pitchfork, who hailed the track as old-school Devendra, a fragile acoustic come-on that doesn't sacrifice lyrical weirdness for smoothness.
