Devendra Banhart Scores Indie Comedy 'Joshy'

BY Gregory AdamsPublished Dec 14, 2015

While Devendra Banhart delivered a pair of art books earlier this year, the prolific psych-folk figure will be offering up new music in 2016. That said, it won't be in album form, but as a score to forthcoming indie flick, Joshy.

The recently unveiled Sundance Film Festival guide confirms Banhart's participation in the comedy, which was written and directed by Jeff Baena (Life After Beth, I Heart Huckabees). Though samples have yet to be delivered, the artist's score accompanies a film about a man named Josh who continues on with a bachelor party even after his engagement is called off. It's added that his friends are too "focused on drugs and their own hangups" to focus on Josh's situation.

Described as hitting "the right droll tone exploring how dumb the love of men can sometimes appear," it stars Thomas Middleditch, Adam Pally, Alex Ross Perry, Nick Kroll, Brett Gelman and Jenny Slate.

Banhart's last studio full-length was 2013's Mala. The art books he issued earlier this year are titled I Left My Noodle on Ramen Street and Unburdened by Meaning. You can find out more about those projects over here.
