Favourite Gig: Devendra Banhart

Venezuelan-American artist Devendra Banhart conquers hearts wherever he goes with his magical compositions and his charming trembling voice. This year he has presented his tenth album, “Ma” (Warner, 2019), in which he has the collaborations of Cate Le Bon and Vashti Bunyan. Filled with lush melodies and surprising string arrangements, Banhart – who is approaching his forties – deals with the death of parents and mentors and gives life lessons to the son he probably won’t end up having. Cruïlla Primavera presents him tonight in concert at Razzmatazz.

Best Covers: Boy Azooga “Do the Standing Still”

Welsh band Boy Azooga released 1, 2, Kung Fu!, their debut album, earlier this year via Heavenly. Led by Cardiff’s Davey Newington, the band incorporate a variety of influences into their idiosyncratic style, including ’90s alt riff rock, Mac DeMarco-type underwater romanticism and that indescribable Welsh magic (see Super Furry Animals and Cate Le Bon).

Meanwhile, they’re releasing a cover of “Do the Standing Still” which was a single byshort-lived Welsh punk band The Table.

Les muses de La Musa: Cate Le Bon

L’univers folk post-punk pastoral de la galesa Cate Le Bon ens visita per presentar el seu quart disc, ‘Crab day’ (2016). Amb una veu que recorda a Nico, Le Bon va cridar l’atenció internacional per primera vegada el 2007, quan va telonejar al seu paisà Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals), ens inunda amb saxos, guitarres distorsionades, percussions i un so que ens transporta al glam de T Rex i al Bowie de la primera meitat dels 70. Aquesta nit a Sidecar.
