Devendra Banhart, Joanna Newsome, Vetiver

Folk surrealist Devendra Banhart makes another visit to Dallas and brings a traveling cavalcade of minstrels and harpists with him. His second full-length album, Rejoicing in the Hands, abounds in the rustic, antiquated sentiments usually found only on archival recordings such as Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music but with a capricious, often nonsensical bent to his prose (sample lyric: "I could take my little teeth out, and I could show them a real good time"). Joanna Newsome matches Banhart's whimsy with enigmatic, childlike pieces supported by her own gracefully deft harp plucking. Both musicians also perform with the folk collective Vetiver.
