A Mad & Faithful Telling (Anti-)


The three guys and one gal who make up DeVotchKa sure don't sound like they're from Denver. Their global-music grab bag includes plenty of gypsy punk-funk, but they also pack it up and head to Europe and Mexico for inspiration. DeVotchKa got a big boost a couple of years ago, when its music showed up all over Little Miss Sunshine's soundtrack. A Mad & Faithful Telling keeps up the frenetic pace — sorta like an ethnic wedding where everybody's drunkenly trying out the band's instruments by night's end. Horns, violins, and accordions fuel songs like "Basso Profundo" and "The Clockwise Witness." Sousaphone solos and frontman Nick Urata's yelp keep them moving.
