A really nice, delicate release from freak-folk mainstay Devendra Banhart, although I think he might have toned down the ‘freakiness’ by now. Ape In Pink Marble is an LA production, imbued with the sunny attitudes of sweet sweet California. Released on Nonesuch: the LP edition comes with a bonus poster.

This is a fine example of the man's talents, excelling in a sonic journey reminiscent of the many bands in the 60's and 70's that stylistically resemble acts like Traffic. He has really refined his lyrical abilities, the songs are twisted and fractured love debacles with a tinge of sadness. This is a beauty and so well written - a solid, complete album by Devendra. This could very well be his best album, song for song. It starts strong and keeps the momentum going. Ape In Pink Marble is pure, distilled Devendra.
