Stream two new songs from Devendra Banhart's Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon


Well we knew it wouldn’t be long before we could hear some of the recently finished tracks from Devendra Banhart’s upcoming album Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon. Now here you go! The full tracklist has been posted online and you can listen to two new songs streaming on his myspace page. I literally just finished listening to them and both brought a huge smile to my face. The earlier post today has officially been shattered, this is just what I needed. The first track ‘Tonada Yanomaminista’ keeps true to his earlier description of it being equatorial pop and the second track ‘Rosa’ sounds like it could have been penned by Gilberto Gil in the late 60’s (artists can still write like this?). Thanks Devendra for restoring my faith in music this week…

Click here to stream the two new Devendra Banhart songs ‘Rosa’ and ‘Tonada Yanomaminista’

Alternately you can download the new tracks over at Subway Songs. I’m waiting for a better quality mp3 single before I post any download links. (these are just myspace rips)

(now all we need is some high quality mp3’s of these tracks to listen to in their full splendor, myspace compresses the sound a lot)

  5. Oh, I made a bad prediction about the song that Rodrigo sings, but I loved the two new tracks especially Rosa. About the other track name, Yanomaminista is portuguese for Yanomaninist, that is regarding to a person born in the indian tribe Yanomamis.
