Devendra Banhart
Devendra Banhart releases a new four-song EP, Vast Ovoid. The EP is a follow-up to Banhart’s latest studio album, Ma, which was released to critical acclaim in September 2019. Ma, full of tender, autobiographical vignettes, displays a shift from the sonic experimentation of Banhart’s previous albums to an intricate, captivating story-telling and emotional intimacy. Banhart favors organic sounds to accompany his voice and guitar, the arrangements bolstered by strings, woodwinds, brass, and keyboards. "This EP was born during the Ma recording sessions, three songs that didn’t quite fit in with Ma’s theme of maternity. Ultimately all three songs are about the difference between disappointment and disillusion." - Devendra Banhart

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
