Producer Gone Solo Act

The Devendra Banhart & Joanna Newsom associations would be enough of a stamp of approval to get me to check this out, but I've also seen this guy play live (with Banhart at Coachella last spring) and can attest that he's charismatic and talented in his own funky way. There's a clip at the end of this story, so you can hear for yourself. I think he sounds a bit like Julian Casablancas from The Strokes.

Noah Georgeson produced Joanna Newsom's The Milk-Eyed Mender and Devendra Banhart's Cripple Crow, and he has played guitar with Banhart in his band and on Vetiver's To Find Me Gone. He also dated Newsom and was in the band the Pleased with her. So he has something of a nĂ¼-folk pedigree.
