Devendra Banhart Readies New Book I Left My Noodle On Ramen Street

When Devendra Banhart moved to New York and released Mala back in 2013, he seemed to have lost a bit of his signature sense of wonderment. The whimsy wasn’t there; instead, Banhart just sounded kind of sad. Fortunately, with the announcement that he’s releasing two art books this summer, it would appear that Banhart’s sense of humor seems to have remained intact. Banhart will release the absurdly titled collection of drawings, paintings and mixed media work, I Left My Noodle On Ramen Street, on 6/10, and his limited-edition collaboration with artist Adam Tullie, Unburdened By Meaning, is available now. Banhart will discuss I Left My Noodle On Ramen Street with the ex-Moldy Peaches member Adam Green at the Strand Bookstore in lower Manhattan on 6/25. In addition, Banhart released a short film yesterday that chronicles some of his 2014 South American tour, which was directed by Tullie. Watch below.

I Left My Noodle On Ramen Street is out 6/10 via Prestel and Unburdened By Meaning is out now via Anteism.
