For his Nonesuch debut, Devendra Banhart chose the title Mala, literally the Serbian word for “small,” but used colloquially in Eastern Europe as a term of endearment—“like sweetie pie,” Banhart explains. It was a placeholder during most of the recording, a working title offhandedly inspired by a ring his fiancée, the Serbian photographer and artist Ana ...

4.0 out of 5 stars A return to form. 29 Oct 2009
By J. Frew
Format:Audio CD
I first started listening to Devendra Banhart with the release of Nino Rojo and loved its simplicity, the beautiful three minute folk songs of At the Hop, We all know and Be kind. However in the next two albums Cripple Crow and Smokey Rolls down Thunder Canyon the songs (and whole albums) became longer and longer. This seems to have gone hand in hand with Noah Georgesons control as producer. Now however What will we be comes along with so much more focus, beautiful melodies and thoughtful production its almost like all the wishy washy previous material has been washed clean. All in all a great work.

4.0 out of 5 stars an artist who sounds at peace with himself 1 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Devendra Banhart's new album is not a radical departure from his previous releases, but there is progression. He retains the warm folky feel, the playful, yet thoughtful lyrics, the charming delivery and Spanish language on some tracks, all good things, as far as I'm concerned. I think change is in attitude, it's visible in the confidence this record displays, he sounds like a man who knows, musically and in life, what he wants and is on his way to getting there. More focussed than the last album, and better for it, I love the fun and the laid back vibe. Honestly, I don't think it will change any body's world, but it will make it a much more enjoyable place to be. The man is charm personified. I particularly recommend 'Rats' and the single 'Baby'.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its a HARD thing to think 14 Nov 2009
Format:MP3 Download
I'm a big fan of DB, have been for about 4 years, and love everything all the way back to the Black Babies EP and his best album in my opinion, Oh Me Oh My. Something happened when Cripple Crow came out. He got a band... that and the sound started getting cleaner. I know its all horse for courses but if you're drawn to DB for his beautifully sparse warbling vocals, oblique lyrical content and lo-fi recording quality, shop for earlier stuff. I know this album, and its predecessor, Smokey Rolls Down the Canyon will have their supporters... but not for me. I was once (or twice) quoted as saying "if I were to be left with no music save for that of one artist, leave me Devendra Banhart and his back catalogue". Now... I'll stick to my guns, but you can have this and the last album back thank you. Now, this may be a grower, I dunno yet... the last wasn't! Its a bit slick production, wishy washy song writing and falling back behind a band for my liking. Get back on your own, on your four track recorder and sing me some proper stories!

All in all, its OK... its 3 stars just cause its DB... but thats not what I expect from a Banhart! Go get the Dent May album instead. My pick of 2009

Take care my lovelies x
