Devendra Banhart

Growing up in Caracas, Venezuela and Los Angeles, Devendra Banhart was always playing music and drawing. But it wasn't until his brief stay at the San Francisco Art Institute that the disciplines became his constant companions. With the encouragement of poet and SFAI professor Bill Berskon, Banhart began experimenting with all kinds of art. He also began recording songs around that same time, usually on shoddy, hand-me-down four-track machines. Brief, half-finished, or written in stream-of-consciousness form, the recordings weren't initially intended for release. But friends encouraged Banhart, and he sent out a few tentative demos. He also left SFAI in favor of busking and wandering, and his travels led him from the Bay Area to Paris and eventually back to L.A. By now he was performing regularly, but he hadn't recorded or released anything officially. That changed when Michael Gira (Swans) issued the first Banhart material on his Young God imprint in October 2002. Oh Me Oh My... was an immediate critical hit, and comparisons to legends of songwriting, eclecticism, and tragedy were frequent (Tim Buckley, Syd Barrett, Marc Bolan, et al.). The Black Babies EP arrived in 2003, followed by Banhart's first full-length, Rejoicing in the Hands, in April 2004. Young God released its companion, Niño Rojo, in September. Acclaim for both was nearly unanimous, and Banhart's audience continued to expand. He jumped to XL for September 2005's Cripple Crow, an ambitious set and his most sonically expansive album up to that point. Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon continued in that vein, recorded at Banhart's new home studio in Topanga Canyon. A jump to Warner Bros. brought a more straightforward set (relatively speaking), What Will We Be, in 2009. Released in 2013, Mala organized some of the overstuffed elements of Banhart's multifaceted muse into a more cohesive set of songs than on his previous few albums. ~ Jason MacNeil & Johnny Loftus, Rovi

Not Bad. It has that Hippy Feeling to It. Nice.

The story behind that song, Little Boys, is actually really funny! Once Devendra heard that his album was going to be sold and played at starbucks, he recorded this song to make sure that wouldn't happen. I guess he's just against such a mainstream spread of his music.
Ever hear the song Little Boys on the Cripple Crow album? What's that about? Sounds like he's a boy lover if you listen to the lyrics, kinda disturbing!
amazingly beautiful!!! <3
Thank you for making lovely music.
one time i accually understood everything that he was saying amazingly steller devandra

papasmrf6673
damn devendra is the best i love all his stuff and new CD on the 27th!!! if only he would tour to Kansas.
I like how this music has brought about this exchange.

Be him the distressed soul, the artist or hollywood, Devendra is an amazing person that his music is being herd and shaping people is good enough for me.
TristanCloy: PEOPLE have been symbols of other people for years. CHRIST is a symbol of a sinner, or of God, or of Christians in general. Bhudda, the symbol of what Bhuddists (or other spiritual peoples) strive to be. Marc Emery...ever y pot advocate... Symbols are objective. Perhaps to SusieCasta, Devendra Banhart DOES represent the distressed soul.
Kyle: learn to spell before insulting others.
hahaha eric hay is so gay for freakin out over this mediocer muscian
So chill
I've meet Devandra...h e ' s an amazing person & artist. I cant say enough good things.
hey D-Bag, who are you to say you have a clue what the genre symbolizes.. . s h u t the F8ck up
tristancloy
christ wept. do any of you have any idea what you're talking about? how can a PERSON be a symbol of someone? Your only other point of reference for Devendra is a Hollywood package production? Philistines and lotus-eaters , you are the aesthetic nemesis of everything this genre TRULY symbolizes.. . f - i n g amateurs.
what a wonderful discovery
he is a symbol of someone with a distressed soul
Yeah.
Never heard of this guy but "Bad Girl" is such a trip. Acid was good for music.)

Devendra is one of my favorites and I recommend him to anyone looking for kind of a new sound
I love this sound... we need more like it!
Nice music, but Dev's freaky tremolo makes me nauseous.
my god! he has something going for him, i can't even explain!
lovely. a little psychadellic . . in an abstract sort of way. not bad at all.
he makes the music my heart sings..... <3 takes the thoughts out of my head. beautiful beautiful beautiful <33333333333 3
lovely, soulful, extra-beauti f u l , s w e e t and simple
Banhart is one of those rare performers who infuse his art with his true inner soul.
Devendra banhart is amazingly unique... I wouldn't mind having his babies.

Ha! At first, I misjudged Devendra in two ways: I pictured him as a big-boned British woman, and I thought he was a novelty. Thank god I heard his work a second time, because something then pulled me into his zero-gravity song-writing , his wonderfully strange vocal style, and the sweet-hearte d , homemade production quality. Every album so far is a lovely, ecclectic little gem, worth at least a few runs thru some high quality headfones and high quality herbs.
yum
