When it comes to Devendra Banhart releases, my final overall feeling is always that I quite enjoy them. There are always a bunch of pretty good tracks, a couple 'odd / don't quite work / we get it, your a free spirit' tracks, and then there is one or two total jams that are so total in their jammage that it ups the quality of everything. And his latest release Mala continues that trend.
The total jam? This track obviously. It had me vibing with it so instantly and freely that it took a few spins before I realized that he sings the track from a lady's perspective. Which briefly made me wonder if I was vibing with it from a lady's perspective. But only briefly. Then I just went back to very much enjoying the tune and not saying 'vibing' anymore.
