REVIEWED BY CHRIS STRAUSS

ALT-FOLK

Forget about trying to pigeonhole Devendra Banhart. On his latest, the razor-averse eccentric delves into an array of genres, loosely tying them together with a unique brand of experimental folk. As a complete work, this ambitious disc may be disjointed, but it's also a testament to Banhart's talent that he is able to switch gears so adroitly, whether it's the irresistible funk of "Lover" or the Doors-esque highlight "Tonada Yanomaminista."
