His music, it’s really hard to describe, it’s a mix between psych folk, indie, instrumental, folk, LO-FI, and  _______ ( listen and insert here whatever other gender you want to add).

He dated Natalie Portman in 2008, and he convinced her to be in one of his videos as a Bollywood princess.

Enjoy

Love
