Editorial Reviews

For more than a decade, DeVotchKa has melded its influences from Eastern European wedding bands to Norteno ballads into an authentic and totally original blend of popular music. The band s haunting, romantic sound evokes timeless images, attracting thousands of fans to their sold-out live shows. DeVotchKa s sound has proved particularly attractive to filmmakers, who have used DeVotchka songs to score countless films and commercials, most famously Little Miss Sunshine, for which they received a Grammy nod. With the release of the band's fifth album, 100 Lovers, the band returns to the epic settings of the Arizona desert with producer Craig Schumacher (Calexico, Neko Case) to create a new collection of
haunting stories, with songs like The Man From San Sebastian delivering on their intriguing titles with enigmatic lyrics and cinematic soundscapes.

I have since gotten their previous 2 albums - both of which I highly recommend.
Los Ojos
Honestly I think these guys have much more depth and passion than beirut or calexico which they are often compared.
Horselover Fat
Far more than progressive rock, it's global in scope, with complex rhythms that defy categorization in one genre.

I'm on my second listen and really digging this recording. I wasn't a huge fan of a mad and faithful telling, but this album is almost on par with how it ends, grabbing with with depth and feeling, and passion, like. Honestly I think these guys have much more depth and passion than beirut or calexico which they are often compared. There is an intensity, and subtle tension, and I find it moving, it really makes you feel something. It sometimes has a bit of 80's feel but I forgive it when I hear it.

What an amazing album. While I had heard of Devotchka before (Little Miss Sunshine, etc.), this was the first album of theirs I actually purchased. I am so glad I did! I have since gotten their previous 2 albums - both of which I highly recommend. I can't think of another recent album that displays such a high level of talent, musicianship and beauty. Devotchka, and this album in particular, has been my best musical discovery of this year!

Since this is my favorite band, they can do no wrong. I may update this with a more objective, substantive review, but for now, I will just say, if you're not listening to DeVotchKa, you're really missing out on something wonderful.

Hagerman's violin has never sounded better - King's drumming keeps every song together - Schroder's haunting bass line - Urata's voice wounds and heals in the same breath. How does this compare to previous albums? It's DeVotchKa as they continue to evolve, hard to classify - completely eclectic. There are elements of Supermelodrama present in "Exhaustible". "Bad Luck Heels" shares trumpets with "We're Leaving" and "Along the Way". Is there a "Queen of the Surface Streets"? A "Transliterator"? A "How it Ends"? Of course, but it'll be something completely subjective - something that speaks to you as the listener, not me. For me, right now, it's "All the Sand in all the Sea"...

**Update.

Okay, after listening to the album 3 times now, I can say that there is a much heavier Latin influence on this record, perhaps due to guest performances by Mark Refrosco and members of Calexico. Without the liner notes, it's hard to know what songs they perform on, though. It's much more drum-driven than A Mad and Faithful Telling, but it's a welcome progression for the band. Far more than progressive rock, it's global in scope, with complex rhythms that defy categorization in one genre.

The standouts for me so far are "All the Sand..", "The Alley", "Exhaustible," "Bad Luck Heels" and "Sunshine".

Fans of Gogol Bordello, Calexico, Beirut and A Hawk and Hacksaw, should be pleased with DeVotchKa's new album.

I came upon this by accident. I have never heard of Devotchka but happened to be in a book store one day where they were playing this CD. While I was browsing I kept getting images of the Beatles Sgt. Peppers (probably due to the heavy use of strings and backwards effects), as it progressed one song seemed to flow into the next and I was immediately taken. The voice and the lyrics were interesting and very identifiable. So I decided to buy a copy. I have listened to this CD about 4 times now and I really do find it very original and it has great depth. I am a very big progressive rock fan, a fan of bands like Porcupine Tree, Transatlantic, Dream Theater, Pink Floyd etc. And I found this to fit right in with my tastes. It doesn't necessarily sound the like hard core progressive rock but it does have overtones of music like Peter Gabriels, more universal sounding. A very, very good purchase and I recommend it if you like a more global progressive sound. Some interesting latin soundscapes are also included on the last couple of tracks. This CD is a refreshing surprise!

I recently saw DeVotchKa in concert again (more on that later), and ahead of that show I relistened to their most recent album.

"100 Lovers" (12 tracks; 45 min.) starts off with a gentle sounding "The Alley", which is followed by a hard-charging "All the Sand In All the Sea" (the guitar reverb reminded me of Interpol, of all things). "100 Other Lovers" and "The Common Good" cap off the first part of the album. After a short "Interlude 1", DeVotchKa dives into "The Man From San Sebastian", another highlight. The last section of the album is noticeably heavy on the Latino influences, check out "Bad Luck Heels" and even more so on "Ruthless" (which feels like it's sung in Spanish but it's not) and "Contrabanda". In all, this is quite the album, and DeVotchKa simply continue their winning ways.

I had seen DeVotchKa live once before when they played in a small venue here in Cincinnati during the tour in support of "A Mad and Faithful Feeling", and had the good fortune of seeing these guys again about a week ago when they played at the Bunbury music festival here in Cincinnati. The band brought a rousing set, playing mostly from these last 2 albums, including "All the Sand", "Common Ground" and "Contrabanda" from "100 Lovers" and "Along the Way" and Comrade Z" from "Faithful Feeling". Just outstanding. Do not miss these guys if you have a chance to see them live!
