It’s not everyday you and your band end up flying through¬†the anus of a butt-shaped planet in a large pill-shaped vessel, dancing in a cartoon with mythical creatures and throwing a party therein with fab from the strokes and a wu tang clanner (Think Bedknobs and Broomsticks pre island of Naboomboo on acid minus Angela Lansbury). All in a days work for DEVENDRA BANHART though. Enjoy.
