Devendra Banhart :: Stream "Cripple Crow"

Due for release this September, 'Cripple Crow' is Devendra Banhart's fourth proper studio album and his third album on XL Recordings. 'Cripple Crow' was recorded at Bearsville Studios in Woodstock, NY late Winter '05 with regular sidekick Andy Cabic, Noah Georgeson and Thom Monahan joining Devendra in the studio; the latter co-engineered & co-produced and the former co-engineering, co-producing and also contributed sundry instrumental and vocal accompaniment. This new album finds Devendra continuing his extraordinary growth as a writer, vocalist and musician. Songs like 'Now That I Know' and 'I Do Dig a Certain Girl' among others provide more of the hushed, mysterious acoustic alchemy that delighted listeners on preceding set though the new tunes show still greater artistic depth and delicacy. All in all 'Cripple Crow' witnesses Banhart furthering his mastery of the acoustic/experimental idiom he helped pioneer as well providing himself with fresh challenges an artist.
