Album Capsules--Devendra Banhart

Devendra Banhart



I almost didn't get album because I thought it was, you know, mala.  And Devendra Banhart's peculiar brand of freak-folk has been spitting out some fairly shitty albums lately.  But Mala is a good one.  He pulls off the fairly awesome trick of making you want to dance to songs that are far mellower than most of his prior work.  If you are a fan of Banhart, you might even think that many of the songs are nearly unrecognizable as his own, except for his distinctive vocals.  Try "Never Seen Such Good Things" below.
