Devendra Banhart
Ape In Pink Marble

A really nice, delicate release from freak-folk mainstay Devendra Banhart, although I think he might have toned down the ‘freakiness’ by now. Ape In Pink Marble is an LA production, imbued with the sunny attitudes of sweet sweet California. Released on Nonesuch: the LP edition comes with a bonus poster....view item »

Devendra Banhart
Rejoicing In The Hands

Devendrta Banhart seemed to kick-start a whole new acid-folk movement and reintroduced the world to old folkies such as Vashti Bunyan (who appears on this album). He seemed to have his fingers in a lot of pies in the early-mid 2000s - a bit like Justin Vernon has been doing more recently. "Rejoicing In The Hands" takes the ideas and sounds from ...view item »

Devendra Banhart
What Will Be Will Be

I understand how Devendra has essentially evolved and grown. Devendra is one of those artists that does his own thing. Although I tend to think this is perhaps how he always wanted to sound, or was building up and evolving to this point, consciously. This album was recorded in Mexico, and maybe that's why it has a subtle layer of Mexican sounds in ...view item »

Devendra Banhart
Heard Somebody Say

Can I just say every time Devendra Banhart releases a record I get angrier & angrier. Never has the phrase 'emperor's new clothes' made more sense. This new abomination of a single has some quasi mystical, semi religious messiah bullshit on the sleeve which makes me dream of violence against Jesus freaks. The song 'Heard Somebody Say...view item »

I Feel Just Like A Child

I feel like I'm having a bit of a go at folkies this week - I love folk music but like all musical genres there's always people ready to jump on the bandwagon and the trick is to be able to sort the wheat from the chaff. Anyway new single from one of the nu-folk 'leaders' Devendra Banhart - the single starts with a horrid piano blues lam...view item »

Devendra Banhart
Mala

Mala is great from start to finish, although for Devendra fans it's different. This represents Devendra's first effort with a high level of production. It's not folksy by any stretch of the imagination. So hardcore Banhart fans might be disappointed, but give Mala a chance. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Devendra produced this album with...view item »

Devendra Banhart
Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon

I used to quite like Devendra Banhart but he wound me up after a while. The whole Jesus thing you know...... I wanted to smash his bearded goon face in. Well not really.... he's probably a nice guy and I'm a total pacifist. His warbling voice takes a bit of getting used to but once you've got used to lamb bleeting there is some joy to be had in his...view item »

Devendra Banhart, Diane Cluck, Various
The Enlightened Family

Ah last couple from me. A Voodoo-Eros Compilation named 'The Enlightened Family' just crashed from our sexy new Yank-o-phile distro. This is 13 obscure & rare tracks from the likes of Devendra Banhart (when he was a mere slip of a lad) Antony (of Johnsons fame) doing a rather risque tune called 'Why Am I Still Su...view item »

Devendra Banhart
Cripple Crow

The music on the CD is pretty good. He's definitely cut off all the strange obtuse angles and mad squawks of his earlier records and so this is pretty straight down the middle folk stuff that sounds just like Tyrannosaurus Rex with added string sections here and there The guy obviously has a skip full of talent and this CD is definitely...view item »

The Queens of Sheba (Devendra Banhart)/Lavender Di
split

Next a 7" by Jesus (sorry.... sorry I mean Devendra Banhart) under the name of The Queens of Sheba. It's a split xmas 7" with Lavender Diamond. The Queens of Sheba song is probably the worst Christmas song since Gary Glitter's ill advised 'Christmas with the Kiddies' comeback single. The ly...view item »

The Black Babies

"Black Babies" was Devendra Banhart's debut UK release. It's defiantly lo-fi, there's lots of tape hiss, and wow and flutter. If you didn't know any better you would assume that you'd unearthed a lost '60s relic here. In general the songs are okay, but seem to be ideas rather than the fully realised songs of later albums. Overall, this mini-albu...view item »

Devendra Banhart
Little Yellow Spider

Devendra Banhart is a quirky chap indeed. Singing all about little yellow spiders and whatnots. XL have released a single called Little Yellow Spider before his new album is due next week The man is clearly bonkers, listening to his music. I've never heard anyone mention crabcake in a song before and I'm pleased someone has finall...view item »

Devendra Banhart
At The Hop

'Life begins at the hop' so sang XTC. Here comes Devendra 'Bolan' Banhart with a new single 'At the hop'. Its a nice little song  - his creations are starting to get more and more linear as the years pass. Still sounds so much  like Marc Bolan's during his  folkie period  that I'm starting to get sick of...view item »
