Devendra Banhart - "16th & Valencia"

As freaky as Devendra Banhart can look and sound with his face paint, headdresses and often psychadelic and surreal lyrics ("Wrap me in your marrow, stuff me in your bones"), the prodigious musician is a classicist at heart. Never more so has that shown than on his latest release, What Will We Be. Whether it's a simply constructed folk ballad or funky rock and roll groove, Banhart has an ear finely tuned to to the past, and here, he lets his good taste lead him into his most confident and accessible album to date.
