Devotchka | 2 nights @ Spiegeltent, Little Miss Sunshine soundtrack & 2006 tour dates
DOWNLOAD: Devotchka – Venus in Furs (V.U. cover) (MP3)
That CD there pictured to the right is the EP Devotchka put out in May. Curse Your Little Heart is six songs, three of which are covers of Siouxsie And The Banshees, the Velvet Underground and Frank Sinatra. One-third of the album is available for download at Harmonium.
Have you seen Little Miss Sunshine yet? I had no idea when I previously mentioned it that so many people hated the movie. More importantly I forgot to mention that Devotchka pretty much performed the whole soundtrack….
Don’t be fooled by the “various artists” credited as performing on this soundtrack: the CD actually has a rather uniform tone, and mercifully it’s a lovely one. Composer Mychael Danna is paired with the Denver band DeVotchKa, who perform his score and offer a few tunes of their own. Making excellent use of strings, tuba, and squeezebox, they set a mood that echoes the movie’s warmly idiosyncratic one.
Remember the Spiegeltent? The new temporary venue’s been open for weeks and I still haven’t had the chance to check it out. Hopefully that will change by September 8th or 9th when Devotchka perform there two nights in a row. All tour dates below…
