[music] Devendra Banhart

Обычно хорошая музыка меня накрывает через месяц-два после того, как я её добуду и первый раз послушаю. Сейчас настал черёд Банхарта. И, скажу я вам, он прекрасен!

Момус правильно говорит: "Before I knew about Devendra, I had a Devendra-shaped hole in my life… I wanted a contemporary figure in the mold of Gong's Daevid Allen or the Incredible String Band's Mike Heron. And, by Shiva, we've got one." Ну и с молодым Боланом его кто-то сравнивал; тоже негуёво.

– I like the Indian thang; is he actually Indian-American or is it just fashion?

– It's just fashion. There's a kind of headgear hierarchy whereby only those who truly, truly do not fear ridicule can wear a turban.


Update:

Pitchfork: Are there any specific songs you'd like to talk about, or any definite track titles, or thoughts on an album title?

Banhart: There is a title but I don't wanna say it. For now let's call it Same Shit, Different Ass.
