jana hunter handmade her lo-fi dreamy recordings until devendra banhart and andy cabic signed her unto their own label gnomonsong. im not sure what it is with jana’s voice but somehow when she sings with devendra, i think of john lennon. theres no overstepping of any boundries, just some type of raw quality im understanding that eerily reminds me of the way music kind of hurts and feels amazing all at the same time. as we’re sailing off in this private boat towards a familiar beautiful island. maybe its heaven, those swaying guitars, happy handclaps, generous calming of winds … maybe its home.

listen to: farm ca, restless, bright ass light with devendra

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
