Devendra Banhart: 'White Session' + New MP3s
Devendra Banhart will release his new record, Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon, on September 25th. Now streaming at his website and myspace are two songs from the upcoming CD, "Samba Vexillographica" and "The Other Woman", these are the latest in a series of new songs to be showcased in this way. But what Sixeyes has for you today is the White Session that Banhart recorded for France's Inter Radio on September 16, 2004. That's eleven songs, six of which appear on Nino Rojo (which was released 3 days prior to this session in the US and Canada, and 11 days later in the UK), another 4 are found on Rejoicing In The Hands, which was released earlier in 2004 (May), in fact both Nino Rojo and Rejoicing In The Hands were recorded during the same marathon 10 day session in the Georgia home of legendary recording engineer Lynn Bridges. Those sessions were just Banhart and his guitar (with some musicians added after the fact to embellish the sound), these White Sessions are raw Banhart, guitar and voice alone.
