Devendra Banhart in session

Devendra Banhart is live in session, plus Lauren plays out the week's People's Playlist - half an hour of brilliant tunes chosen by listeners.

Devendra Banhart wll be live in session playing tracks from his forthcoming 8th studio album Mala. The album was recorded in his then-home in Los Angeles. (He now resides in New York City.) He and his longtime bandmate, guitarist Noah Georgeson played most of the instruments themselves, using borrowed equipment and a vintage Tascam recorder they'd found in a pawn shop. "A lot of early hip-hop had been made on the Tascam," says Banhart. "And knowing my songs are not hip-hop whatsoever, we thought it would be interesting to see how these kinds of songs would sound on equipment that was used to record our favorite rap. Let's see how this technology would work for us." It was a new approach for the pair. "In the past we were more like, let's use the oldest equipment we could find."
Plus, Lauren plays out this week's Peoples Playlist; half an hour of brilliant tunes chosen by you on a given theme, free music in MPFree and take some time out to enjoy a gorgeous tune in The Headphone Moment.
