Devotchka - A Mad & Faithful Telling
I have recently been obsessing about the latest album from Devotchka, A Mad & Faithful Telling. The new album is their first for Anti Records, and is also their first of new material since 2004's How It Ends. The new album takes everything about the band that you might already enjoy and adds a layer of maturation.
The Denver band that began as a backing band for burlesque shows continue to lean heavy on their eastern european sound that is sometimes labled as a fusion of Gypsy, Greek and Slavic indie rock. The album overall is really soaring and large in its sound, it is almost as if Devotchka have recruited an extra group of instrumentation to pull off the new record.
A Mad & Faithful Telling is out March 18th on Anti Records and comes highly recommended.f
