The album is a follow-up to the 1996 "Red Hot Rio." Proceeds from the sales will be donated to raise awareness and money to fight AIDS/HIV and related health and social issues.In April 2012, Banhart took place in artist Doug Aitken's audiovisual project "Song 1" at the Hirshorn Museum in Washington D. Banhart joined Beck and James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem in performing "I Only Have Eyes For You" for the project that uses eleven high-definition video projectors working in tandem to blanket the museum's entire surface with a video of the performance.
There’s an assumption that, even if the artist works in different mediums, those mediums are all part of the same story.
“I’ve been embargoed on describing any art as childbirth.” Banhart and I caught up again a few weeks ago, when his curiosity and genuine interest in my own work made me realize how much people project themselves into his music.
Consider the second half of the album, when the meditative Oriental synth arpeggios of “Mourner’s Dance” channel Angelo Badalamenti’s theme and the gorgeous “Linda” finds Banhart personifying a drifting, lonely woman who can barely let out the words to sing by the song’s end.
Drawings by Banhart were featured in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and in the Centre for Fine Arts, Brussels.
His drawings were featured in MOCA's exhibit "The Artist's Museum", in which the works of influential Los Angeles based artists from the last 30 years were presented.
Banhart was born May 30, 1981 in Houston, Texas, to a Venezuelan mother, Maria Eugenia Risquez and an American father, Robert Gary Banhart.
