The tenth studio album from Devendra Banhart is a poetic paradox; joy and pain, light and dark, both metaphysical but grounded. All these contradictions come together and result in an album somewhere between the light-heartedness of Kings Of Convenience and the doom and gloom of The Velvet Underground. As usual, the Venezuelan-American has mastered a wide range of styles (bossa-nova, soft rock, chamber folk, dream pop) and shows off his linguistic abilities (singing in english and spanish) in dream-like musings of motherhood, death, friendship and the meaning of life. He has swapped the minimalism of his previous album Ape in Pink Marble (2016) for a more sophisticated style, notably in the duet with the great Vashti Bunyan in Will I See You Tonight. The coming together of this folk matriarch with her spiritual son is what makes the title of the album so meaningful; Ma not only reveals the talented crooner’s most intimate musings but is an elegant and graceful celebration of filial love. – Alexis Renaudat
