“Für Hildegard Von Bingen,” one of the best tracks off Devendra Banhart’s new album, was named after the German saint in the Catholic sense, though the new video is concerned with a different idea of that word. The story follows a nun who secretly worships the art world of the city behind the back of the head priest. Her fantasies come to life with superimposed images of her singing with Klaus Nomi, certainly one of the saints of downtown New York in the ’70s. It’s an exquisite looking video, directed by Isaiah Seret and Banhart. -- Stereogum
