If you are not familiar with Devendra Banhart, all you really need to know is that he resembles a version of Russel Brand you would not be embarrassed to hang out with….and you should always listen to the music of a man who has successfully courted Natalie Portman.
His latest album is great, and I encourage you to listen to it in its entirety, but this song in particular, has been hard for me to shake. It’s one of the most palatable tunes on the album and, unfortunately, one of the shortest. What starts a lot like something from Citizen Cope, quickly matures into one of the catchiest 7 line songs you’ve ever heard.
I tend to imagine myself in an El Camino, tearing down a desert road, with a cigarillo in my teeth and Benicio Del Toro in my passenger seat. We probably both need a shower.
