Devendra Banhart Loves His Animals

Published: 2005-07-25
Leader of the neo-folk hippie movement, Devendra Banhart, will re-enter the global music consciousness this fall with the release of the singer/songwriter's fourth full-length this fall. Coming with the obligatory animal-inspired title of Cripple Crow, the album is due to hit stores on September 13th.
