Devendra Banhart & Noah Georgeson - Refuge. 2LP [Blue Seaglass Wave Translucent Vinyl]

 

Last spring, Devendra Banhart and Noah Georgeson started to make a record that was like nothing they had made before - an ambient album that would be both a haven from a suddenly terrified world and a heartfelt musical dialogue between two artists who have been friends and collaborators for over two decades. ‘Refuge’ is an album of profound meditative beauty which offers the listener a much-needed sense of peace and renewal.

 

It was while making Devendra’s 2019 album ‘Ma’ that the pair finally decided to make their ambient record. Despite complicating logistics, 2020 created an emotional craving for music with this contemplative, therapeutic quality. Inspired by both memories of the past and the needs of the present, ‘Refuge’ is an act of companionship and generosity which gives the listener room to breathe. “We’re hoping to create a sense of comfort and coming back to the moment,” Devendra says. “It’s really important to have a little bit of space between us and our anxieties and impulses. What you do with that space is up to you.”
