Boomkat Product Review:
Having likely earned himself a chill following the knicker-dancing escapades of his 'I Feel Just Like a Child' video, Ol' Dirty Beard Devendra has retreated back in front of the fire for the latest cull from his glorious 'Cripple Crow' LP. Plodding in the best possible sense of the word, 'Heard Somebody Say' takes Banhart's overtly folk-leaning tendencies then wraps them in a choir-steeped cask of poignant piano, catchy melodies and cracked vocals. It's folk Jim, but not as we know it. Backing it up are the banjo rustle of 'Lickety Split' and old-school railroad honky-tonk of 'Chicken', wherein Banhart gets thigh-slappingly chatty over a frenetic burst of old-old school American heritage. Ye-haw!
