Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Mountain will be released on September 25, and while trying to figure out which Devendra Banhart song to post, I found out he’s putting up a couple of songs from his forthcoming album each week. You can check out the 2 he’s put up here.

Drawing from his time living in Venezuela, Devendra has added some tropicalia influence to his repertoire.

Here’s a rendition of a Caetano Veloso song done by Cibelle and Devendra that appeared on her 2006 album The Shine of Dried Electric Leaves.

Cibelle & Devendra Banhart – London, London

In other news:


Jana Hunter has premiered a new song on her myspace in anticipation of the release of her ep Carrion out Sept 10.

Carrion has a few songs in the same vein as her last album, as well as a a few re-workings.

If you’re a vinyl junkie like me, you would be wise to pick up the one sided limited (to 500) 12″ on Woodsist. You can get that here and now before the cd is out.
