So trolling the new stand the other day i grab the issue below and started to thumb through it when out pops a multi page spread with Devendra Banhart. Paraphrased taglines to swanky looking pics of ultra hip Devendra in thrift store duds "Photographed in cloths picked out by Devendra himself to show of his unique sense of fashion" Wonder if that guy has actually learned how to sing into a mic yet? Amazing how his shining little star just really took off out of nowhere. Also funny how in the grand scheme that the poster boy for "new weird America" has way eclipsed Michael Gira who really sort of put him on the map in the first place? And since I'm ranting on the topic of new weird American Joanna Newsom has a new triple CD out on Drag City?? are you fucking kidding me a triple CD of solo harp and vocal warble??
