2008-03-18devotchka i still remember that one email rox sent me, with a devotchka song "how it ends" as an attachment. hearing that song, i immediately liked it.
devotchka are back, with a new release today, their most recent album "a mad & faithful telling". listening to this, i am not as impressed as i was with their previous album "how it ends". there are no surprises; they're still playing their balkan-inspired type of music.
however, overall, i find that the new album sounds somewhat "happier".
my favourite part of this album is during the song "the clockwise witness", at around 3:54, when the violins start. almost an eargasm, but not quite, because that part reminds me a little of final fantasy.
they've some tour dates in support of the new album, but none in montreal. boo...
