Oh Devendra


I really didn't want to like Devendra Banhart when I first heard of him. I mean seriously he's just the weird cousin of Sufjan right? Okay maybe that's going a little far. I bought his Rejoicing in the Hands album and was pleased with it much to my dismay.

I mean I'd worked hard to avoid him but when I fell into the Joanna Newsom trap I knew I would soon fall prey to Mr Banhart. And I did. And then I downloaded Cripple Crow when it leaked (yes I'm terrible) and loved it to pieces. Well Cripple Crow actually comes out today in fine record stores and I recommend we all go buy it yeah? Okay if you're not convinced here's something to bring you over to the freakfolk side.

Now That I Know
This Beard is for Sibohan
We All Know
I Feel Like a Child (via Stereogum)
Here's the music video for Devendra's song "I Feel Just Like a Child"

hey Michael,

have you heard any Feathers tracks? If you dig Cripple Crow, you'll definitely like them (I think). they work through many different styles, etc.

hope you're well-
