    Devendra Banhart to Tour US and Canada in May and June
    Ana Kras

    Devendra Banhart, who made his Nonesuch debut with the release of his eight studio album, Mala, last week, has announced a series of spring tour dates in the United States and Canada for May and June. The tour starts with shows in Aspen and Denver in early May; heads to Arizona and to the West Coast for a run up California, Oregon, and Washington; then to the Midwest, Canada, and the East Coast. See below for all of the currently scheduled tour dates; visit nonesuch.com/on-tour for details and tickets links for these and previously announced European summer shows. Tickets for most of the North American shows go on sale this Friday, March 22. Check back for additional dates to be added in the coming weeks.

    Mala was released to critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic, with Pitchfork calling it "Banhart's best record in nearly a decade." Following early four-star reviews in Mojo, Q, the Times of London, and others, the Guardian recently added its own four-star review, describing it as a "triumph." Under the Radar concludes: "He's a singularly idiosyncratic and brilliant songwriter, one hitting an arresting stride on this uniformly superb album."

    Magnet magazine, which calls Mala "the best thing he's done since his debut," has featured Banhart on the cover of its latest issue. He is also its guest editor all this week, posting daily on the magazine's site till Sunday. You can read the cover story and his daily posts at magnetmagazine.com. You can also read interviews with Banhart in the Wall Street Journal at wsj.com and the Village Voice at villagevoice.com.

    Banhart recently made the rounds of the South by Southwest (SXSW) music conference in Austin, performing at KCRW's Radio Day Stage showcase, in a SXSW showcase at the Central Presbyterian Church, and at an intimate Nonesuch Records event on the tree-covered lawn of the Hotel St. Cecilia, which Pitchfork described as "a welcomed respite from the non-stop noise" of the festival.

    While in Austin, Banhart spoke about the SXSW experience and about his new album with Soundcheck from New York City public radio station WNYC. You can listen to the show here:
