Devendra Banhart releases a four-song EP, Vast Ovoid, as a limited-edition 12” coloured vinyl 45. The EP features ‘Let’s See’, as well as Helado Negro’s remix of ‘Love Song’, and is a follow-up to Banhart’s latest studio album, Ma.

Banhart says:

“This EP was born during the Ma recording sessions, three songs that didn’t quite fit in with Ma’s theme of maternity…

Ultimately all three songs are about the difference between disappointment and disillusion…

Bigger difference than I realized….

Lots more freedom in disillusion, lots more breathing space…

something is echoing out each day

between our distant bodies…

uncertainty has always been there, hasn’t it?

It’s scary…

But all the seeds for real change are actually starting to grow…

Onward we go ... tend to the garden tend to the garden

Keep your guard up

Keep your screws loose

Keep looking out for others

Keep checking in with your body

Keep returning to your breath

Tend to the garden.”

Ma, full of tender, autobiographical vignettes, displays a shift from the sonic experimentation of Banhart’s previous albums to an intricate, captivating story-telling and emotional intimacy. Banhart favours organic sounds to accompany his voice and guitar, the arrangements bolstered by strings, woodwinds, brass, and keyboards. He sings in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
