When Devandra Banhart started recording about a decade ago, the material was loose and the songs were half-finished. He worked on hand-me-down machines and never intended to do anything with the demos. He briefly attended the San Francisco Art Institute but left to wander and busk and traveled to Paris and eventually back to L.A. where he performed regularly. In 2002, his material was publicly released and was immediately critically recognized. Devandra was signed to Warner Brothers this year and the album What Will Be will be released October 27th. We got the song "Baby" in this week and it found it's way right into the cd player and onto the air on What's New For Lunch and Uncharted Waters.
