6/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 1st July 2015

"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-album reminds me of the very psychedelic "Mind Gardens" from The Byrds' "Younger Than Yesterday" album which is a challenging listen. "Bluebird", "The Charles C. Leary" and "Cosmos & Demos" are the better tracks on here.
