Cripple Crow was released on XL Recordings on September 13, 2005. It is the fifth album by psych folk acoustic rocker Devendra Banhart and his first for the label XL Recordings. The cover is reminiscent of the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and The Hangman’s Beautiful Daughter album covers.
Devendra Banhart’s Cripple Crow. The Sgt. Pepper’s-esque set-up displays Banhart’s circle of collaborators and friends. I don’t know a lot about “freak-folk”, but I see Joanna Newsom in the picture, one of the other movement leaders.
