    Mala

    LP comes with Bonus CD and 7" Vinyl Single with Two Bonus Tracks


    Devendra Banhart releases his Nonesuch debut, Mala, on March 12, 2013. The singer/songwriter co-produced the record with his longtime bandmate, guitarist Noah Georgeson. Banhart's eighth studio album, Mala was recorded in his then-home in Los Angeles. (He now resides in New York City.) He and Georgeson played most of the instruments themselves, using borrowed equipment and a vintage Tascam recorder they'd found in a pawn shop. "A lot of early hip-hop had been made on [the Tascam]," says Banhart. "And knowing my songs are not hip-hop whatsoever, we thought it would be interesting to see how these kinds of songs would sound on equipment that was used to record our favorite rap. Let's see how this technology would work for us." It was a new approach for the pair. "In the past we were more like, let's use the oldest equipment we could find."


    Banhart also notes how his voice has developed over the years: "I don't really take care of my voice, but, just like with playing guitar, you get more familiar with it, and you get better at it. I've always said that I'm very good at not knowing how to play the guitar but, really, it's just that I'm very comfortable with the utter uncertainty of my approach."


    Banhart's previous release, 2009's What Will We Be, received critical acclaim, with Rolling Stone calling it "the best he's ever made." The Los Angeles Times said the record "found him making comfortable, laid-back folk that didn't sound like a compromise-more like an artist growing into his own."

    Cripple Crow

    Banhart's fourth critically acclaimed album, released in September 2005, now available for the first time on vinyl. Cripple Crow has scanned over 30,000 units to date. The release of this double LP coincides with a host of summer tour dates. ...pure folk-flavored whimsy, reminiscent of Tim Buckley and 1970's cosmic pinup Marc Bolan - Blender. ...there's something about Banhart's muse that defies words and logic, something to these songs that hints at a deeper connection to the cosmos than most of us share. Jeff Buckley might have had that gift; John Lennon and Van Morrison certainly did. Add to that list Devendra Banhart, an astonishing talent whose future work promises to bring us to exciting new places - Harp.

    Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon

    During spring of 2007, Devendra Banhart and his band took up residence and built a studio in a house in Topanga Canyon. Topanga is located in the Santa Monica mountains and is bound on one side by the Pacific Ocean. Neil Young once lived there while recording After the Gold Rush and the area has also been home to Emmylou Harris, Taj Mahal, Joni Mitchell, Mick Fleetwood and members of the Doors. Those ghosts inhabit the sound and vibe of these recording sessions.


    Everyone wants to say that an artistsÆ new album is the best thing theyÆve ever done, but this is truly the case here. The whole ôfreak folkö tag is gone and in its place is a classic, gorgeous rock album. There are songs that are fragile and solipsistic, ones with a pronounced Tropicalia influence, and ones that are wildly electric and epic.


    ôAn old-fashioned psychedelic folk opusàhis strongest music since 2004Æs Ni±o Rojo, if not his best ever.ö - Rolling Stone


    ôUnflinchingly imaginative and thoroughly charming, except maybe more so. One of the few new singer-songwriters whose every work is more highly anticipated than the last.ö - Harp

    Noah's Ark

    Since the mysterious and beautiful La Maison de Mon Reve surfaced in early 2004, CocoRosie have spent months traveling the world with the likes of Bright Eyes, TV On The Radio, Antony And The Johnsons, Devendra Banhart, and Blonde Redhead. Along the way, Noah's Ark took shape, where heart-offerings of friends, family, loved ones and lost ones surface gracefully, contributing depth to the narrative journey. Noah's Ark is the result of a rootless reality, a drifting consciousness across state lines, date lines, time lines...connected to the past, vague about the future. But the heart of these songs is always issued from a tender present.

    Half A Native


    Produced By Thom
    Monahan (Peter, Bjorn & John,
    Devendra Banhart And Vetiver)


    Won 2014 Houston Press Music
    Awards For Best Folk/Americana
    And Best Male Vocals


    Some places you feel like you only sort of fit in and it is this
    theme that permeates Houston based folk rock band Buxton's new aptly
    titled album Half A Native. One of the leading lights of an emerging music
    scene from a city with a burgeoning youth culture, Buxton have won 2
    Houston Press Music Awards as Best Houston Folk/Americana Band as
    well as Best Male Vocals (Sergio Trevino).


    Their new album ventures into vast sonic territories, sometimes
    pairing atmospheric piano with off-kilter electric guitar, blanketed by
    Trevino's heart-clenched voice and melancholic but optimistic lyrics.
    "We take from a lot of different genres and present it in a way that i think
    is most honest for us," Trevino says. "You'll hear rock, folk, country,
    ambience, and distortion, all interpreted through us."


    Recorded in Los Angeles with Thom Monahan (Peter, Bjorn & John,
    Devendra Banhart and Vetiver), the 11 new tracks broadcast a wandering
    sound, from the dusty tones of guitar-slinging anthems to lonesome
    acoustic affairs that look outward and within. Their latest effort is
    music for the search for home; the long journey to find somewhere,
    something, or someone that makes everything fall into place.

    Upper Air

    The follow-up to 2007's acclaimed Hymns For A Dark Horse. Upper Air moves away from the singular sound and sentiment; each song is a unique, beautiful piece. The arrangements are subtle: acoustic guitars, organ, piano, autoharp, violin, percussion, upright bass, and more are used throughout. This music has the spirit of Richard and Linda Thompson, the currency of Devendra Banhart, and the addictively sweet melodicism of Iron & Wine, but it churns with an underlying energy closer to a Beirut or something more raw, more wild.

    Little Joy

    Little Joy is Rodrigo Amarante (Los Hermanos), Fabrizio Moretti (The Strokes) and Binki Shapiro, three friends who dropped their routine in their respective hometowns to make a record in Los Angeles, California. Through a chance encounter at a Portuguese festival in Lisbon, where both Amarante (Los Hermanos) and Moretti (The Strokes) had performed, the two talked about working together on some music that had no affiliation to their particular bands. A year later, Amarante traveled to the United States to record with Devendra Banhart on his Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon. It was there that Amarante and Moretti were introduced to Bink Shapiro through mutual acquaintances and soon after started writing original music as a band. They all moved into a house in Echo Park to demo songs and soon after, with the help of producer Noah Georgeson who had recorded Banhart's music, finished their self titled debut Little Joy named after the bar on the corner.

    You And Me (Discontinued) (On Sale)

    You & Me is Kevin Barker's debut album, released by Gnomonsong. Though it's his first solo release under his own name, Barker's no newcomer to the scene--he's spent the last few years recording, touring, and collaborating with Devendra Banhart, Joanna Newsom, Vashti Bunyan, Vetiver, Antony and the Johnsons, and Espers, to name just a few. Essentially acting as everyone's favorite sideman, Barker has influenced and helped create a sound with which this generation is happily familiar. During his college days, Barker became interested in the finger-style guitar playing of John Fahey and Bert Jansch and began to record under the name Currituck County. This solo project (sometime a duo with Vetiver / Espers drummer Otto Hauser) recorded albums for Teenbeat Records, Troubleman Unlimited, and the UK's Track and Field Organisation. Now Barker has assembled an unbelievable group of musicians for You & Me. Produced by Thom Monahan (Vetiver, Lilys, Gary Louris, Devendra Banhart), the album features Pat Sansone (Wilco), Joanna Newsom, Jonathan Wilson (Elvis Costello, Jenny Lewis), Eric Johnson (Shins, Fruit Bats), and Otto Hauser (Vetiver, Espers). Full of sunny, rural country rock, You & Me recalls the rustic grooves of The Band and The Grateful Dead, the heady melancholy of Roy Harper, and the golden harmonies of CSNY.

    Painted Garden (Discontinued) (On Sale)

    Greg Ashley, mastermind behind The Gris Gris and The Mirrors, is going solo for the first time since his 1993 masterpiece Medicine Fuck Dream. The result, Painted Garden, is Ashley's most ambitious, textured, beautiful and dark record to date. Warmer and more intimate than Gris Gris' 2005 garage-psych stunner For The Season, Painted Garden still reflects the same vision behind that band's greatness.


    Written in the burnt-out ghettos of Oakland and in Ashley's remote East Texas cabin, the album's ten songs drip with the psychedelic flair that turned on cats such as Roky Erikson, Mayo Thompson and Skip Spence (and more recently Vetiver, Six Organs of Admittance, and Devendra Banhart).


    Beautifully orchestrated, sometimes fragile and always fuzzy, the album features great tunes, proof that the young songwriter's star is still on the rise. Written, produced and performed almost entirely by the artist, Painted Garden is a true vision realized, and puts Ashley right up there with the great musical minds of the day.

    Holy Smokes

    " guileless craft - directly culled from (Townes) Van Zandt's lectern." - AMERICAN SONGWRITER


    "Fierce youthful abandon mixed with the serenity of an old soul makes for some rockin' songs and smooth ballads." - CHICAGO SUN-TIMES


    HOLY SMOKES is a rockin', groove-laden follow up to the rock opus PARDON ME, which put Tyler and his band The Northern Lights on the map when released in 2010. The new album reveals a more pensive and sophisticated Tyler who's learned his lessons while navigating the rollercoaster of life on the road, major festivals, major labels, drugs, booze, great love, great loss and the heartbreak of mistakes you can't change and time lost that you can't take back. The album was co-produced by Tyler and Thom Monahan (Chris
    Robinson, Devendra Banhart, Vetiver) in both Tyler's native Dallas, Texas and his adopted hometown of Los Angeles, California.

    The Navigator

    On Hurray for the Riff Raff's new album The Navigator, Alynda Segarra tells an interwoven, cinematic story of a wandering soul at a crossroads of identity and ancestral weight. It finds a street kid named Navita traversing a perpetually burning city in search of herself. The Navigator is a thrilling call to arms that could not come at a more crucial time. It also finds Hurray for the Riff Raff at its own musical intersection, delving deep into the worlds of Latin rhythms, searing rock, and incisive ballads.


    The Navigator was produced by Paul Butler (Michael Kiwanuka, St. Paul and The Broken Bones, Devendra Banhart) and recorded at Electric Lady Studios in NYC and Panoramic House in California. The album features percussionists Juan-Carlos Chaurand, Gregory Rogove (Rodrigo Amarante), a trio of Bomba drummers, and Doo Wop singers from New Jersey.

    A NDO C Y

    "Hauschka's ingenuity to rework his instrument into a entire orchestra is astounding." - CMJ


    "Inspired concept, superlative execution." - Uncut


    Last year Hauschka (aka Volker Bertelmann) released
    Abandoned City, an album of stately prepared piano pieces
    inspired by forgotten locales that have been left to retreat
    back into nature. It was a gorgeous, uniquely evocative
    album that drew universal acclaim and elevated
    Hauschka's reputation as an elite modern composer.


    A NDO C Y is a continuation of the Abandoned City story,
    told as a tale of two sides. Side A features five tracks
    conceived during the Abandoned City sessions, a suite of
    songs that together form an exceptionally resonant whole.
    As with Abandoned City, these songs owe as much to
    minimalist techno as modern composition, which makes
    them particularly conducive to remixes. On Side B,
    experimental folk icon Devendra Banhart distills
    Abandoned City standout, Agdam, to barely-there,
    fractured clusters of solitary piano strikes and swelling
    synths. By comparison, Eluvium's transformation of
    Stromness sounds almost shockingly euphoric, all
    cascading waves of distortion washed over a plethora of
    plucked piano pings.


    Included as a special bonus download is a stunning live
    album recorded in Yufuin, Japan in late 2014. The
    40-minute performance is split into two 20-minute
    improvisations built on themes from Abandoned City. It's a
    gorgeous glimpse of live Hauschka, a world where songs
    you think you know become entirely new works of art at the
    mercy of Bertelmann's whims.

    Ventriloquizzing

    After two years experimenting in the shadows, cutting edge minimalist-funk heroes Fujiya & Miyagi are back with their darkest and most propulsive set yet. The band's fourth full-length, Ventriloquizzing has a dark heart, via its throbbing electro-glam beat and menacing lyrics. I think there's an underlying anger, or perhaps just annoyance, at institutions and people in general, and probably ourselves too, says singer/guitarist David Best. And it also seemed like the right time to work with someone else to help us avoid going to our default setting, which the band combated by bringing in a co-producer for the first time in the form of famed producer Thom Monahan (Devendra Banhart, Vetiver, Pernice Brothers), their first time not self-producing. Written in Brighton, UK and recorded in Sacramento, CA; Ventriloquizzing is likely the first (and last) black comedy you can dance to.

Their involvement reflects both their admiration for Antony and his unique place in the contemporary arts community. Reed asked Antony to perform as part of the small ensemble on Reed's American and European tours, and he gave Antony a solo turn on the Velvet Underground classic Candy Says, an homage to another one of Antony's inspirations, Andy Warhol. In fact, the image adorning the cover of this album is Peter Hujar's striking 1974 photo, Candy Darling On Her Deathbed. Like some unsettling ghost relative of Jeff Buckley and Billie Holiday singing for all the fallen, this is tough, honest, uncompromising beauty and the next great voice in music - Mojo. If a great voice is often said to be an instrument, Antony's is a near orchestra, carrying extremes of emotion, great waves of suffering, tragedy, redemption, and joy - Metro. Look for a full US tour this fall.

    The Dance Of Reality: Original Soundtrack


    LP Album Jacket Includes a Number of Production Stills from the Film


    Mastered by Joe Yannece


    Lacquer Cutting on LP by Carl Rowatti at Trutone Mastering


    The release in 2014 of The Dance of Reality marked the
    triumphant return, after a 23-year hiatus, of Alejandro
    Jodorowsky, the visionary Chilean filmmaker behind cult
    classics El Topo and The Holy Mountain. In the radiantly
    visceral autobiographical film, a young Jodorowsky (played by
    his son, Brontis) is confronted by a collection of compelling
    characters that contribute to his burgeoning surreal
    consciousness. Adding to the autobiographical nature of the
    work, the film was shot in Tocopilla, a coastal town on the
    edge of the Chilean desert, where the filmmaker was born in
    1929. Blending his personal history with metaphor,
    mythology, and poetry, The Dance of Reality reflects Jodorowsky's
    philosophy that reality is not objective but rather a "dance" created by our own imaginations.


    Jodorowsky's films have always placed a special emphasis on music-his soundtracks rank as among
    the most daring and fascinating in film history-and for The Dance of Reality, Jodorowsky tapped his own
    son Adan Jodorowsky (a.k.a. "Adanowsky"), whose work as a composer and performer (with Devendra
    Banhart among others) has won him an international following in his own right. Adanowsky's score is
    alternately lush and comical, blending brooding string passages with hypnotically repeating piano figures
    that create a mood that is at times foreboding, at times wistful and, as is always the case with a score to
    a Jodorowsky film, surreal.


    As part of its continuing association with ABKCO Music & Records, Inc., Real Gone Music is proud to
    present the complete soundtrack to The Dance of Reality on LP, mastered by Joe Yannece and
    with lacquer cutting by Carl Rowatti at Trutone Mastering. The album jacket includes a number of production stills from the film. Alejandro Jodorowsky's tradition of
    remarkable film soundtracks lives on with The Dance of Reality.

    Sweeten The Distance

    The first line of the title track on Neal Casal's tenth studio effort Sweeten The Distance says much about where the storied singer/songwriter/guitarist finds himself in his career: Nothing's gonna stop you now, everything you want is coming in good time. After 20-plus years of writing songs, recording albums and touring the world, there's a confidence and patience in his latest work that reveals an artist in full creative flight.


    Produced by Thom Monahan (Fruit Bats, Devendra Banhart, Vetiver), Sweeten The Distance is indeed a defining moment in Casal's discography. Rich acoustic textures and sophisticated melodies of songs like Bird With No Name, and Need Shelter and Gyrls of Wynter give way to a psyched-out ambience on White Fence Round House, Feathers for Bakersfield and How Quiet It Got.


    The depth of production, with its purposefully layered sounds and oceanic atmospherics, makes Sweeten The Distance as much a multi-dimensional headphone experience as a soul-stirring modern songwriter record. And as such, Casal emerges as an essential voice in the new cosmic California movement.


    In addition to his critically acclaimed solo work, Neal Casal made a name for himself as the lead guitarist in Ryan Adams & The Cardinals, with whom he recorded four albums: Easy Tiger, Follow the Lights, Cardinology and III/IV. Currently he serves as a central component of the Chris Robinson Brotherhood with whom he contributes lead guitar and vocal harmonies. Over the last year, Casal also added guitar and vocals to Ryan Adams Ashes & Fire, Fruit Bats Tripper, The Jayhawks Mockingbird Time, Vetiver The Errant Charm and a forthcoming recording by Beachwood Sparks.

    Many Colored Kite


    Many Colored Kite is the follow-up to his 2007 personal milestone Salvation Blues, a soul-searching album of loss and change that further cemented Olsons reputation as one of the true heroes of the folk/roots scene. The album was a New York Times critics pick and received rave reviews for its autobiographical, often painful songs. Its a hopeful Olson that greets the listener on Many Colored Kite, with its earthy, neo-folk feel that encompasses classic and 60s British folk as well as the desert country hes been associated with in the past.


    The opening track, Little Bird of Freedom (with backing vocals by Jolie Holland), sets the tone of the album: these are songs by a man whos made it through the eye of the tempest and is looking at the world as if hes seeing it for the first time. Elsewhere Many Colored Kites airy, uncluttered songs celebrate life and nature (Wind and Rain, Morning Dove) and love (Blue Bell, No Time to Live Without Her featuring Vashti Bunyan). Produced, mixed and engineered by Beau Raymond (Devendra Banhart, Little Joy, Mark Olson and Gary Louris) and featuring the core group of Olson, Neal Casal and Danny Frankel, this is a wide-eyed, uplifting album with soaring, ethereal harmonies contributed by Ingunn Ringvold.

    Fear In Bliss

    Bella Union is excited to release Fear In Bliss, the debut album from
    recent signings HORSE THIEF. This youthful band is a purveyor of a
    panoramic yet nuanced sound, flowing from intimate to anthemic,
    the mood from vibrant to contemplative, with front-man Cameron
    Neal's lyrics ranging from confessional to metaphorical. The result
    evokes the wide-open spaces of America's Midwest but infuses the
    sense of grit and wonderment with edgier emotions.


    Horse Thief, originally founded in Denton, TX, moved to Oklahoma
    City to attend the Academy of Contemporary Music at the University
    of Central Oklahoma, from which they recently graduated. The band
    subsequently signed with the Flaming Lips' management and soon
    came to the attention of Bella Union. Though Fear In Bliss was
    conceived at Horse Thief's Oklahoma headquarters the band
    decided to record the album in LA, "to leave our comfort zone of
    Oklahoma", and producer Thom Monahan (Devendra Banhart,
    Vetiver) has helped the band fuse their renowned stage performance
    with studio quality.


    The over-arching theme to Fear In Bliss is "finding yourself and what
    you believe in, and finding the comfort in acknowledging fear. I've
    struggled with anxiety and depression which comes out a lot on the
    new album. But when everything gets rough, I think there's always a
    way to fix it. The biggest thing for me is to give comfort to people,
    to shed light on the truth that someone is feeling the same way as
    them.

    Born With Stripes

    San Diegos The Donkeys strike a balance of smiling, surfer mysticism and winking, slacker mystique. They reanimate the charming hallmarks of sunshine-rock past without being sepia-toned retro or bubblegum-cloying. There is an innate playfulness and honesty to the music they make. Its a dynamic that has made public champions of keen-eared musicians like John Darnielle (Mountain Goats) and Craig Finn (The Hold Steady). It was Darnielle who claimed The Donkeys were benevolent keepers of what he called The Antidote to an unnamed sickness plaguing indie rock.


    Born With Stripes is an altogether less twangy affair than the bands 2008 Dead Oceans debut, Living On The Other Side. The nods to Grateful Dead and Buffalo Springfield are better balanced with echoes of other Cali arists, notably Pavement and Beck. The country-rock flairs are often overtaken by powerpop hooks. What some might call a lazy melody is really just a melody on its own clock. Nice and relaxed.


    Ceiling Tan, feels like a lost weekend in Tijuana with Mutations and Crooked Rain, and may well be the bands mission statement. I Like The Way You Walk also cops a 90s alt-rock lick, but ditches any esoterica for earnest yearnings and sweet nothings.


    What makes the Donkeys so potent is not their ability to rehash the past, its that their records embody a pureness, an authenticity that is unmatched in contemporary music. We were not the only ones to feel this undeniable connection. The Donkeys had a brush with Hollywood when Lost producer Eddy Kitsis heard the band, and cast them as Geronimo Jackson, a band he had written into the Lost story as an obscure San Francisco band from the 70s, who were peers of the Grateful Dead. Kitsis heard the Donkeys and felt they so embodied this fictitious band, that he actually had the band re-record their song Excelsior Lady as Dharma Lady and weaved it into the TV show.


    The album was mixed by Pernice Brothers Thom Monahan, whose involvement not only gives us the crispest, warmest Donkeys recordings to date, it also serves to remind us of the bands loose connections to an array of psych-dappled kindred spirits: Vetiver, Papercuts, BrightblackMorning Light, Devendra Banhart. Monahan was not the only outsider the band collaborated with on Born With Stripes. The playful album artwork was created by California illustrator and cartoonist Tony Millionaire, best known for his comics Maakies and Sock Monkey, and as the creator of the Adult Swim show Drinky Crow.

    Parallelograms

    What's all the fuss about? If you've read any of the hundreds of articles in music mags and on the net about Linda Perhacs' sole 1970 LP Parallelograms, you'd be tempted to question its reputation. People talk about Parallelograms in much the same way that they talk about Nick Drake's Island albums, Swaddling Songs by Mellow Candle and Vashti Bunyan's sole LP for Phillips... as a life-changing musical experience, one that inspires them to create new works of art and to express their deepest emotions despite the risk. Sure, there's a lot of hyperbole out there about this record, and yet it's absolutely warranted. For just about 40 minutes, it will take you on a guided tour of a world that's far too beautiful to exist... but does.


    Part of the effect of the album is in the incredibly sensitive production by soundtrack composer Leonard Rosenman. He facilitates some very non-traditional ideas and gets extraordinarily skilled musicians to execute them. Rosenman's willingness to work in intense collaboration with a wide-eyed studio novice speaks volumes about his desire to help create something truly original. Sundazed used a pristinely preserved master tape of the album as its source and meticulously remastered to reveal a deep and subtle soundscape that practically reinvents the listening experience even if you've heard Parallelograms a thousand times before. Listen to Steve Cohn's guitar lines and how they dance so delicately in and around Linda's vocal lines on songs like Dolphin. When you get to the end of side one, it's time to don the headphones. Every ride in the sonic theme park that is the song Parallelograms is free, and there are no lines!


    As much as it's about the psychedelic production and gorgeous arrangements, it's about words. Linda Perhacs uses words like no one else, teasing and toying with them, spinning them into bright, joyous confections with her voice on songs like Porcelain Baked-Over Cast-Iron Wedding. Her words at times sound like ancient sacred poetry, translated for the first time into English and whispered in your ear by a true love. Listening to Call of the River and Delicious is as close as you'll ever get to hearing the Sirens' song without getting strapped to a mast first!


    People like Devendra Banhart, Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo & Thomas Bangalter (Daft Punk) and Kieran Hebden (Four Tet) have expressed their love of these recordings, and they've taken direct inspiration from it for their current work. Parallelograms has also encouraged a close re-examination of the genre. Let's hope record collectors never stop searching for the kind of magic they hear in Parallelograms. For psychedelic folk, you can start at perfect and go from there.


    This Sundazed release is the definitive edition of this essential album.
