Haha, sorry for the inundation of Devendra posts around here on Naturalismo lately. If you weren’t aware of it, I’m a fairly large fan and with a new album in the midst it is a bit inevitable updates will be coming in droves. Anywho, todays
smokey vasu deva kutumbam [as yet untitled album] update comes from his myspace page and I think is a bit tongue in cheek. In case you missed the other update where I got a response and update from Devendra concerning his new album you can read it here; I got the feeling that he wanted to keep some of the details under wraps for a bit until he has them all completely worked out. Makes sense to me, anyways here’s the new scoop:
Dear Freinds! its a beautiful day in California , we began Mixing the record today, lets see……. its about 16 songs, some very unexpected guests , the main band is Me, Noah, Luckey, Pete, Greg, and Andy, Rodrigo will be playin some shows here and there with us until duty with Los Hermanos beckons and/or the Saudade kicks in.

thats about it right now ! we are just starting to mix today , we will keep ya posted as new ones arise!
on and Onward and Love Above All!
oh , i almost forgot, we still dont have a band name, at least not one thats made it past a couple shows, if anyone has a suggestion , we would LOVE to try it out!
From the sounds of that tracklist, I assume half of it will see Devendra revisiting his early funk roots.
Since there’s no new songs to preview off the upcoming album yet, take a look at this lesser seen cover of Devendra playing “Colarado Girl” by Townes Van Zandt.
