Not long ago when the band unloaded their instruments – a violin, a tuba and an accordion, among others – into a rock club, they were told they must be in the wrong place. They created music that was Grammy nominated (DeVotchKa created the soundtrack for the indie smash Oscar winning film Little Miss Sunshine) without the benefit of a huge promotion team or runaway budget, instead relying only on their own efforts by self-releasing their records. And they crafted gems of songs by mixing a beautiful blend of Eastern European bohemia, American prairie rock and distinctive indie and called it pop, rather than world, music. Now, the band is au courant, poised to shine on with their Anti- Records debut A Mad and Faithful Telling. From the cinematic richness of “Transliterator” to the modern pop experiment of “The Clockwise Witness,” to the soaring and wrenching “Undone,” DeVotchKa have produced a career-defining record and the world is listening.

“Bouncing from Mexico City to Prague to Milan to Denver over the course of ten songs, DeVotchKa’s fourth full-length shows a band aging gracefully and eccentrically.“- All Music Guide
