Devendra Banhart is a Venezuelan American singer-songwriter and visual artist. He was born in Houston but raised by his mother in Venezuela, but he eventually made his way to California as a teenager. He briefly attended the San Francisco Art Institute, but dropped out to become a busker and tour around Europe. He was ā€œdiscoveredā€ by Michael Gira of Swans and signed to Young God Records, completing several simple acoustic EPs. He stayed the course until 2005ā€™s doo-wop and classic rock-inspired Cripple Crow (XL), his sound becoming increasingly elaborate, elevating him far above the ā€œfreak folkā€ millieu of his earlier efforts. Ma is his 10th record, and somehow his most scrutable. Constructed of thoughtful, autobiographical vignettes, Ma heralds a new level of emotional intimacy that stands in contrast to the left-field experiments of his previous releases. ā€œMemorialā€ isĀ gentle strumming and raw vocals, heartbreaking and hauntingly poignant. ā€œNow All Goneā€ could be a downtempo sequel to "Space Oddity", beginning with thumping drums and near-falsetto vocals that deepen to an urgent whisper - keep an ear out for the backing vocals by Cate Le Bon. ā€œKantori Ongakuā€ features breezy instrumentation andĀ a familiar too-cool-for-school drawl that brings to mindĀ Transformer-era Lou Reed. This record is pressed on indie exclusive transparent red vinyl and includes a large poster with lyrics in addition to a printed insert.Ā
