I only found out about Devendra Banhunt through the TV commercial for "Cathedral City", a brand of cheese.
The song in the advert for those who are interested is "At the hop" and if you like what you heard on the advert, do what I did and go get a copy of "Cripple Crow" which is as manic and spontaneous as any Beefheart album yet retaining a simplistic airy feel to that of comptemporary folk, such as Gorky's Zygotic Mynci.

every time I went to my boyfriends house, devendra was playing. I'm not a (or wasn't) a devendra fan and my boyfriend claimed it was his roommate who was listening to him. Well....his roommate has moved out and there's STILL devendra playing every time I go over there....hmmmm. I've come to sing his songs when I'm alone and actually look forward to hearing him (and I do....EVERY TIME I go to my boyfriends place). I guess I'm a fan now

I heared he'll be releasing a new album now... but I didn't find it yet.
Saw him and his band last year.
His music's great.
I'm a fan too:-)

After Cripple Crow I stopped listening to him. I liked his older stuff when he was recording himself.
