KPCC‘s The Frame recently had a long conversation with Devendra Banhart about how living in Los Angeles was an inspiration to him as he created his new LP, Ape In Pink Marble. Listeners can hear the whole thing on KPCC’s website, which also has some choice excerpts. “Los Angeles is a beautiful and really private place,” Banhart tells the station, giving a description of the city that may shock people who have never lived here. “[It’s] a place that has incredible trails and a place that is really bucolic and ecologically-minded and about community.” Learn more about the singer’s relationship with the city – and with his own voice – right here.
Ape In Pink Marble debuted at #33 on CMJ last week. Help it get to a new peak by getting it on your charts this week!
