Banhart/Cabic form vanity label with Beggars

In the biz for just 30 months, Devendra Banhart and Andy Cabic (Vetiver) are already becoming impressarios like Madonna (for whom it took a couple more years to get her own label).

Their new label is called Gnomonsong and will feature the sounds of Banhart clipping his toenails and Cabic rummaging around in Banhart's drawers.

No, I keed.

The first release will be Jana Hunter's demo tapes. Same difference:
Jana Hunter's Blank Unstaring Heirs of Doom, a collection of early demo recordings, will be released in October. Hunter recently recorded a split LP with Devendra on Troubleman Unlimited and appeared on Golden Apples of the Sun. Banhart says he's known her since his first tour with Entrance, where she opened at the Houston show. "I flipped," he said. "I have admired her music and her heart ever since. Forever now, always, she, truly to me, is the Iggy Pop librarian love machine."
