Devendra Banhart – 'Smokey' Update

UPDATE(5-24-2007): See ‘Smokey’ becomes Vasu deva kutumbam (click here)




“recordin’ by Bean Raymon”

While there’s no aural or written updates about Devendra Banhart’s new ‘Smokey’ album, due for release in the third week of August, there is a new visual update from the recording of the album. I found these new photos on Devendra’s website this morning and I’ll leave the sounds that come to mind from viewing these photos up to you. One thing to note is that they have added a new member to the band ‘Pete Newsom.’ Pete is Joanna Newsom’s brother. I was also sent the tentative tour dates for the new album, with the explicit condition that I not post the actual dates. This makes things difficult. So for now I will give a clue as to the first months dates: Port-de-Paix over to Onundagaono.
