2006 was the year of DeVotchKa. Directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris chose DeVotchKa to score Little Miss Sunshine, the breakout indie film of the year, garnering four Academy Award nominations, and earning DeVotchKa a Grammy nod for Best Soundtrack.
With a stage set-up fortified by sousaphone, accordion, piano, violin, a bouzouki, an upright bass, percussion, trumpet, drums and a Theremin, DeVotchKa have won a fanatical live following, touring alongside similar maverick acts such as Calexico and Arcade Fire. Word of mouth spread about the DeVotchKa live experience—tales of trumpeters appearing out of the crowd; of the band climbing offstage and playing in the center of the audience; of trapeze aerialists suspended from theatre ceilings; of audiences driven to tears and then dancing in the space of a song.
• For fans of Arcade Fire, Calexico, Neko Case, David Byrne and Gogol Bordello.
• Produced by Craig Schumacher (Calexico, M. Ward, Neko Case).
“Beautiful freak folk, which takes in the sounds of Eastern Europe, but explores French and South American jams to good effect” – NME
