I've listened to this album four nights in a row now. So smooth and relaxing... in a "I'm wearing my most comfortable shirt and have nothing left to worry about today" kinda way. Which is a great feeling.
Man, everybody's raving about Mala. Is it worth checking out for a dude who's not wild about Banhart's older stuff?
I was not a huge fan of, nor did I plan on seeing, Banhart either. This album was a game changer for me (and my Sasquatch schedule, definitely going to see him!). Like any album, give it a couple solid listens. You might kick yourself later if you don't, especially if you do end up liking it but miss his Sasquatch set. I plan on catching Banhart- Offerman- Akron.
I need to spend a lot more time with that album. I've only listened to the first disc so far but there is a lot more ambient than I expected, given the pattern of his last two releases. It's definitely sounding really nice though.
