Cripple Crow Sampler



Hey all,

For whoever is in complete anticipation of the next Devendra Banhart album (and who isn't, shame on you), you can check out a flash sampler of four new tracks from "Cripple Crow" via prefixmag.com. Devendra continues to expand on his sound with a full band, contributing to some more rockin' tracks which I feel reach a stripped-down T. Rex territory, particularly that of "I Feel Just Like a Child". Check it out. For those who read this and will be in NY come Oct., Devendra will be playing with his band at Webster Hall on the 20th. Get your tickets now!

This new stuff better be amazing and interesting, because I'm getting a little tired of the 'freak folk scene', it's predictable and boring, and seems to be more style over substance.

I sure hope that has nothing to do with your recent listen of the Josephine Foster album.

also not so sure who your tired of exactly - devendra, bunyan, newsom, and foster all arguably, with possible exception of newsom, are hardly style over substance. And to call Foster or Banhart predictable or boring after listening to their albums, in which there is clearly a progression of sound and experimentation would be a little silly.

Let me say this: the reason "Just Like A Child" reminds you of T Rex is because he directly steals lyrics from cosmic dancer.... tomb...womb.... yikes.

I recognize that - they are words. It's not the lyrics, though. I'm referring to the sound. If you listen to some early Marc Bolan, you'll know what I mean.
