[FREAK-FOLK SURVIVOR] For years, Devendra Banhart was the face of freak-folk. Literally: Sporting a rats nest of a beard and an acid-dipped hippie-shaman persona, the shambling troubadour was the physical manifestation of the woolly subgenre threading psychedelic hippieisms through a postmodern stylistic potpourri. In recent years, though, Banhart has tried to distance himself from the music he helped define: His recent press photos find him short-haired and relatively clean-shaven, wearing a buttoned-up flannel shirt. Songwriting-wise, too, he's branched out, to varying degrees of success. What Will We Be in 2009 was a mess of super chilled-out musical globetrotting. New album Mala is similarly all over the place, but Banhart pulls the threads together tighter. And, for the first time in a few albums, he actually seems to have been awake during the recording sessions.
