Chin Chin & Muck Muck

Album: What Will We Be (2009)
  • Texan-cum-Venezuelan singer-songwriter Devendra Banhart told Pitchfork Media about this song: "All the records I've made have been peppered with a couple little insouciant, joking tunes that are for fun. Like I'm trying to write weird bubble-gum pop. But this record I tried to get all of that out with the one song, 'Chin Chin & Muck Muck', which I sing from the point of view of an old woman because that seems to be who I really am. I go to bed at 8:30, I drink warm milk, I watch my shows. I like it."
