Devendra Banhart - Cripple Crow

Devendra Banhart has been around since about 2002. Born in Houston and raised in Venezuela his music has a strong hispanic influence. His voice is very unique in that he has a strong tremelo in his voice – something you will notice immediately when listening to his music. His first few albums on Young God Records were mostly acoustic with alot of nylon string guitar. This is still very present in his latest album, Cripple Crow, but this album is a definate departure from Banharts other sounds. Instead of working alone on this album, he has enlisted the help of backing band friends “The Hairy Faries.” Definately holds a long-term slot in my car’s CD changer.

My favorite tracks include:
Heard Somebody Say
Long Haired Child
I Feel Just Like a Child
Cripple Crow
Hey Mama Wolf
Chinese Children
Little Boys
