Banhart, Devendra - Cripple Crow Cripple Crow
Pop New - LP XLLP192 XL
Sealed, Out Of Print 2006 2LP Gatefold Original. "Cripple Crow Marks A Departure For Devendra Banhart. It's Obvious From The Faux Sgt. Pepper-Meets-Incredible String Band Freak Scene Cover Photo That Something Is Afoot. The Disc Is Banhart's First Foray From Michael Gira's Young God Label, And It's More Adventurous Than Anything He's Done Before. This Is Not To Imply That The Set Is A Slick, Over-Produced Affair, But It Is A Significant Change. The Instrumental, Stylistic, And Textural Range On This 23-Song Set Is Considerably Wider Than It's Been In The Past. Working With Noah Georgeson And Thom Monahan, A Backing Band Of Friends Known As "The Hairy Fairies", Banhart's Crafted Something Expansive, Colorful, And Perhaps Even Accessible To A Wider Array Of Listeners. There Are Layered Vocals And Choruses Of Backing Singers, As Well As Piano And Flutes On The Gorgeous "I Heard Somebody Say," While The Electric Guitar And Drums Fuelling "Long Haired Child," With Its Reverb-Drenched Backing Vocals, Is Primitive, Percussive, And Dark. There Is Also The 21St Century Psychedelic Jug Band Stomp Of The Second Single, "I Feel Just Like A Child," That Crosses The Nursery Rhyme Melodics Of Mississippi John Hurt With The Naughty Boy Swagger Of Marc Bolan. There Are Also Five Songs In Spanish, Banhart's Native Tongue, In A Style That's A Cross Between Flamenco And Son. The Title Cut, "Cripple Crow," Is One Of The Most Haunting Anti-War Songs Around. In It, Banhart Places A New Generation In The Firing Line, And Urges Them To Resist Not With Violence, But With Pacifistic Refusal. A Lone Acoustic Guitar, Hand Drums, A Backing Chorus, And A Lilting, Muted Flute All Sift In With One Another To Weave A Song That Feels More Like A Prayer. The Lone Cover Here, Of Simon Diaz's "Luna De Margaerita," Drips With The Rawest Kind Of Emotion. Ultimately, Cripple Crow Is A Roughly Stitched Tapestry; It Is Rich, Varied, Wild, Irreverent, Simple, And Utterly Joyous To Listen To." Thom Jurek, AMG.... more details
Banhart, Devendra - Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon
Pop New - LP 263 XL
Sealed 2007 2LP 180gm Gatefold Vinyl. In The Early Days Of Devendra Banhart's Career, His Ghostly Voice Singing Down The Phone And Captured On Four Track Was More Than Enough To Lend The Eerie Mysticism Required For His Nonsensical Material (Of Course, It Didn't Hurt That His Voice Was Bewitching No Matter The Lyrical Content). As He Gradually Acquired Confederates And The Ability To Record In Studios, The Clear Problem Was Going To Be Retaining That Same Ghostly Personality That Made His Early Recordings So Special. Decamped To A Woodsy Compound Nestled In Topanga Canyon, And An Enterprising Home Studio Built Within, Manned By Early Champion Noah Georgeson, Banhart Has Weathered The Storm Of Accessibility Very Well. Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon Is Many Things — Perhaps Too Many Things, But Its Successes Outnumber Its Failures, And It Essentially Solves The Problems Inherent In Confining A Free-Form Singer To Time Signatures And Arrangements And Rhythms Imposed By Outsiders. It's Also A Success In That It Finds Him More Comfortable Within Those Confines Than 2005's Cripple Crow, His First Full-Band Record. Of The Many Things Smokey Rolls Is, First Of All It's His White Album, As He Marshals His Many Influences Into A Mural Of Closely Drawn Portraits, Whether It's Victor Jara On The Opener, "Cristobal," Gilberto Gil On The Deep Polyrhythms Of "Samba Vexillographica," Jewish Wedding Music And Borscht Belt Comedy In Equal Measure On "Shabop Shalom," Or, In The Oddest Combination, Dave Brubeck And Grand Funk (Separately, Not Together) On The Eight-Minute "Sea Horse" (With Backing Vocals From Vashti Bunyan). The Album Is Also His Blue, With Several Songs Dedicated To The Destruction Of A Relationship, With Poignant Lyrics. As An Aside, Given The Cast Of "Bearded Bums" Present, Smokey Rolls Is Also His Absolutely Free And, Given His Representation By Neil Young Manager Elliot Roberts, It Must Be His After The Gold Rush.– John Bush, All Music Guide... more details
