Since 2013's lush 'mala', devendra's gone all minimal on us - on his 9th album, he's decluttered to reveal the subtle magic of his breezy hammock songs.

He sounds like he's had connan mockasin in his left ear & joao gilberto in his right, with serge gainsbourg offering the occasional interlude. he's as delightful as always & continues to work alongside his longtime collaborators Noah Georgeson & Josiah Steinbrick. "In spirit, this is a rephrasing of Brazilian Folk & Bossa Nova, which actually sees Banhart in his most natural state yet" 8/10 - under the radar, "a gifted fantasist, creating spider webs of acoustic guitar & vocals” – New York Times.
