Ok how many like Devendra. I have really started to like him alot. At first I wasnt sure but recently I have been wearing out his music. Cripple Crow is a great great CD. I love it. I really dig the whole freak folk thing. What do ya'll think.

I'll listen to it while I'm driving a long stretch and see how it feels... thanks for the tip... R.

I've long had a soft spot for Mr Banhart - kind of reminds me of Tyrannosaurus Rex before they became T-Rex.

LOL I understand Ron when I first heard him I wasn't too sure either. If I remember right there was a thread on here where I was saying I don't like him. He has grown on me and now I really like him alot. Hate to say it but Waits did me the same way and now I he is my fav artist lol.

Interesting. He'll take come getting used to, but I am really enjoying his "Autumn's Child."

After learning Shake Shugaree from Art Thieme, I can't say I like Devendra's version that well, but he certainly is creative and talented. Thanks for posting about him.

I can understand at first I didn't like him at all. I remember thinking "OMG where did this guy come from." For some reason I kept going back and listening to him though. Every now and then I would think about his music and listen to it without any change in my opinion. Then all of a sudden boom everything switched and I really like him alot. I do that sometimes with artists. It is almost like I realize there is something I am missing and then one day I get it. I love the dark spin he put on Shake Sugaree. I know though it is (an he is) not soemthing everyone will big but I remember posting how much I disliked him a while back and decided I owed it to him to say I was wrong. He is very talented and I really enjoy his music.

LOL I sound kind of like it after reading back. No I just like to correct myself whenever I say something that I later realize wasn't right. If I am going to be man enough to bash someone then realize I was wrong I am going be man enough to turn around and say "Hey I was wrong" lol. As vocal as I am that is a lesson I have had to learn the hard way over and over and over lol. I learn the lesson but fail to retain what I have learned for very long :) That is why I haven't said anything about Sufyjan Stevens, or the Dodos lol. Inverse Proportions hum I can take that two ways lol but if Devendra is my recipricol (sic) I would be happy could be alot worse.

I hate his new stuff. Sounds like Donovan's attempts to be funky in the 1960s (except, er, not as funky). Or stuff Beck might have tossed off in some studio downtime.

I can listen to Banhart's early stuff, when it was just him and a guitar. You can hear the Tyrannosaurus Rex influence, sure, but also Mississippi John Hurt and other country blues artists. I like the fact that it's so lo-fi and hissy too (which couldn't be further than the over-produced awfulness of his recent stuff).

I never liked his voice though, which is why I'd never choose to listen to him. And him and Anthony (& the Johnsons) have had a terrible influence on the singing of an awful lot of impressionable would-be bohemians with acoustic guitars.

Not heard his new stuff. That description sounds like a good reason to avoid it, Matt!

Other acts in a similar(ish) vein to check out (if you've not done so already, people): Skygreen Leopards, Wooden Wand and the Sky High Band, Christina Carter, Silver Summit, Fern Knight, MV & EE (with or without the Bummer Road Band). No hyperlinks today, I'm afraid, but should be easy enough to copy, paste and Google.

I agree about his new stuff. His voice has grown on me. I hated it at first but kind of dig it now. I know what you are talking about people imitating his voice I hear it alot now.

Thanks Spleen I have hear some and some I haven't and I am going to check them out.

Cripple Crow is my favorite. I don't know his stuff well enough to say what albums and timeframes or anything like that. I know what I liked that I heard though and I know like you said his later stuff isn't as good. You would be surprised the people that have said the same thing. I was warned about that when I was introduced to his music.

What about his stuff with Vetiver? I have never really checked much of that out.

Only heard one Vetiver album... most of the songs are in that understated psych-folk meets alt-country vein, with a bit of a Mazzy Star influence (in fact the delectable Hope Sandoval sings on one or two songs on the album). Devendra Banhart co-writes a couple of songs but mostly its the baby of Andy Cabic. I like it, but its not an album I play a lot. I haven't heard it yet, but I believe the covers album they did last year is a good one.
