wow! what a comeback! taking us on a nu-folk, country-soul, multi-lingual trip around the sounds of the globe, this is a record that recalls everyone from beck & matthew e white to caetano veloso.

this astonishingly beautiful, viscous, warm, gainsbourg-tinged 8th studio album proves that the eccentric hippie has much more to offer. working with his long-time bandmate, guitarist Noah Georgeson & He & Georgeson played most of the instruments themselves, using borrowed equipment & recording gear they found in a pawn shop. highly recommended. "close your eyes & imagine watching a busker in a foreign city at night, all haunting instrumentals, moody tones & fragile, sweet vocals & you might be able to approximate what Banhart’s up to here" - pretty much amazing, "Banhart’s singing has never been better, the lo-fi production suits his music & he seems to have ditched a lot of the whimsy" - drowned in sound.

sophie recommends : "Banhart weaves tales and sweet melodies in a way that almost makes you feel you’re being sung a delightfully eccentric bedtime story. Oddly amusing and utterly likeable."
