Mr. Banhart's new album is called "Nino Rojo" and it offers more of his eccentric musings, such as "Surgery I Stole". Although this album sees the addition of piano and bass to some tracks such as this one - "Be Kind"
Now when I hear his stranger musical tales, I can't help wonder how they will come across live. Does the magic I hear in some of these songs lessen or increase when Banhart comes face to face with an audience? I will find out in November when he performs in Toronto, I'll let you know what happens.
