Weekly Music: Phosphorescent + Devendra

March 27th, 2013

Two albums on rotate this week that are in a similar vein:


The new Phosphorescent album, Muchacho. I love the opening song, “Sun, Arise.”


I’ve always been just a fringe Devendra Banhart fan, but his new album, Mala, really hits the spot for me. I’m obsessed.

    love the phosphorescent! but the link only streams the first 30 seconds of the song…! (luckily i’ve heard it a couple of times on songza, so i don’t have to go crazy trying to see if i like it, haha.)

    so annoying! i mean, i get it, because of the copyright to the music, but we’re trying to share here! i mean, does anyone actually go to youtube to get their video on anymore? haha.

    anyway. i also forgot i wanted to see if you knew about the band ms mr…they are pretty magical. (check out ‘bones’ – which apparently was the trailer music for game of thrones? – or ‘dark doo wop’…both are gorgeous.)

    So random, I was just listening to the Phosphorescent album on a day trip last Sunday and, like a perv, spent my time in the backseat counting the nipples on the album art.

    And I was a huge Devendra fan once upon a time, but fell out of the loop — so happy to hear this tune!

    Lovely choices, I’ve been listening to the Phosphorescent album for a couple of weeks and keep going back to it. Thanks for sharing!

    I’ve followed your blog for a while and we have similar music taste. (I saw Here We Go Magic in concert – they are awesome…and surprised myself and actually bought the new Devendra Banhart album after I heard it stream on NPR. Anyway, I just heard this song and thought you might like it – the singer reminds me a little of you!:

    Funny, I know Ducktails a bit but didn’t think they had a female singer, but she’s just featured vocals from another band on that song – I like it!
