7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 1st July 2015
Devendrta Banhart seemed to kick-start a whole new acid-folk movement and reintroduced the world to old folkies such as Vashti Bunyan (who appears on this album). He seemed to have his fingers in a lot of pies in the early-mid 2000s - a bit like Justin Vernon has been doing more recently. "Rejoicing In The Hands" takes the ideas and sounds from the "Black Babies" EP and builds on them. The result is a much better one and he creates a beautiful, gentle folk sound. The vibrato in his voice reminds me of Tyrannosaurus Rex-era Marc Bolan and tracks on here such as "Poughkeepsie" will do nothing to despute that. The sound of this album seems to slip between late '60s Bolan, and stoned, trippy alt-folk. There are a couple of curve balls however, "This Beard Is For Siobhan" has a 1930s pop-jazz thing going on.
