Editorial Reviews

What Will We Be has a sunny, breezy feel with performances that evoke warm, lazy afternoons spent with good friends. The album is dominated by powerfully melodic, mid-tempo numbers played with relaxed expertise. But there's also ambitious stylistic range displayed with the inclusion of evanescent ballads like 'Meet Me At the Lookout Point,' the epic riff-rocker 'Rats' sprightly R&B flavored groovers on 'Baby,' and the sultry Latin-flavored stunner 'Brindo,' the Roxy-inspired '16th & Valencia Roxy Music' among other pleasant surprises.

Format: Audio CD
I really enjoy Devendra and his albums. His last two albums, Cripple Crow and Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon, have been more clean and radio friendly than his earlier work (his earlier work is also great though). This album fits into the more radio friendly sound of Devendra (you'll still never hear it on the radio though). In fact, this may be Devendra's most polished or produced album yet. Despite this fact, in a weird way this album is a call back to some of his earlier work. I believe it feels that way because of the double tracked vocals. Even with the double tracked vocals though, it doesn't have the same experimental feel of his first work. This is a perfectly laid back album for relaxing. There are less up tempo numbers than on Smokey but the albums fits together very nicely as a whole. The album doesn't feel as grandeous as Smokey did. It defintly has a more intamit feel to it. I am not saying Smokey was grandeous in a bad way because I really enjoyed that album as well. What Will We Be just shows a different side of Devendra. If you are a Devendra fan, than you need to but this album. Whatever you want to label it, Freak Folk or whatever else, Devendra is in the top of his field.

i WAS very impressed WITH the sound quality of THIS lp. The music on the album is a slight departure for Devendra, but that is to be expected, as one must change to grow. It's a little more rock-n-roll and a little less freaky folk. Still there's enough experimental musical inventions AND ODDNESS to satisfy your Devendracravings. ONE THING i have to say is that I WAS VERY IMPRESSED with the sound quality of this VINYL ALBUM. The sound was CLEAR, ringing in your ears, on your skin, in youR BRAIN EVEN. It sounded like they WERE RIGHT THERE IN MY DEN, playing just for me! Soothing, JarRINg, entrancingggggggg and PsYcHeDelIc... dreamy, and uNIQue... Yes, I recommend you buy it.

Of the two bonus tracks, one is a throw-away going-on-a-vacation jingo, sounds like a tv commercial... but the other... Mmmm... pfantastique! Dreamy, and psychedelic. Like having ice cream licked off your brain.

as much as i always expect a let down sooner or later from artists i love, it still hasn't happened with devendra. in fact he breaks new ground on this album while still giving us that warm sound we love. being a vinyl junkie, i recommend getting the 2 LP version for all the richness that vinyl affords and it comes with 2 bonus tracks.

I first saw Devendra Live in Brooklyn, just before his album came out on young God. Michael Gira was raving about him, and I had to hear him.... I deeply regret not seeing him many more times back in those early days...

I have really been a fan ever since that first time in Brooklyn, he sat there, bare footed on a table, on the stage...and just blew me away. I don't think I have ever enjoyed a Michael Gira support "group" ever so much as this one, although I do like Melissa Nadler.

So the album itself. I understand how Devendra has essentially evolved and grown. Devendra is one of those artists that does his own thing. Although I tend to think this is perhaps how Devendra always wanted to sound, or was building up and evolving to this point, consciously. One can only wonder what strange things David Tibet has exposed our Devendra too, I note Dev's Wiccan Tatoo.... and the thelemic imagery on the last album. Although Dev's music sounded too positive for anythign negative to have crept in.

The Album is then a logical conclusion. The first album "Oh me..." was afterall a demo tape he never thought would be released. So really his first album proper were the subsequent Nino Rojo and Rejoicing in the hands on Young God records.

So as noted the sound has been cleaned up, but this was hinted at on smokey rolls (Dev's previous album)but Smokey's major failure was that it was too long and there were far too many voices all chiming in at once...it was fun, but a mess, the sound of someone allowed to finally work in a group and explode onto plastic.

What will be conversly explores this more refined sound of Devendra without the clattering of too many voices. Indeed as Smokey was too long, this one leaves you wanting more...and more.

This album was recorded in Mexico, and maybe that's why it has a subtle layer of mexican sounds in some of the songs. I think of Angelika and Can't help but smiling. But, really, this album is an example of anachronism. It has no space (it's from nowhere) and no time (it's the 70's (Rats), the '50s (Chin chin and muck muck), and the 60's ("Maria Lionza" could have been written by Simon & Garfunkel and we haven't noticed))

Another thing is you can't really place this album in any genre. Be it freak-folk, brasilian tropicalia revival, jazz or reggae. It is a collage of all of them.

4 stars, specially "Last song for B", "Foolin", "Walilamdzi" and "Brindo".

I love the music of Banhart. I would consider this to be one of his masterpieces. Get this CD and enjoy it! It's good music to enjoy with friends while drinking some good wine.

It slows down a bit in the middle but it's a great album. Glad I found it.
