"VisionVersion series: Pairs talented directors and musicians with the secretive and often magical spaces of Los Angeles.
This installment finds heavenly freak-folker Devendra Banhart in J.F Chen’s Loft, surrounded by the ancient artifacts and contemporary works that showed as part of the Johnson Trading Company’s "Superba" exhibit. Populated with Egyptian chaise lounges, mounted antlers and iron candelabras, the space is at once earthly, global and yet somehow otherworldly — the perfect stage for Banhart’s intimate and simmering soundscapes.”
Devendra Banhart, I cherish you with all of my quirky heart.
