Boomkat Product Review:
Devendra Barnhart presents a compilation of demos pestered from the archives of Vashti Bunyan, Arthur Russell, Nils Frahm, Helado Negro and many more in ‘Fragments Du Monde Flottant’ - this is the only place to get that previously unreleased Arthur Russell peach on vinyl...
"Devendra Banhart presents a very unique & precious compilation featuring his best friends never heard before demos. Among them some of the yesterday and today’s most talented musicians and singers of the folk-pop-experimental scene. This handprinted album comes randomly in six different colored cardboard featuring one of six of Devendra’s drawings.
"I’ve always loved demos, often much more than the final version, in fact. My favorite John Lennon song is a demo , its called Friend of Dorothy , it’s a masterpiece...
Please enjoy this anthology of intimacy before everyone on it freaks out and doesn’t want you to hear their demos (on the bright side , at least 5 of them will show up at your house and pay you the big bucks to get this back!) This comp has taken years and years to put together, wow, has it been that long? Yep.
Love Above All,
