(Oct 12, 2012): DeVotchKa – Somethin’ Stupid

From the 2006 covers EP, Curse Your Little Heart.  For this outing, DeVotchKa provides new music with the title track and five disparate covers — everything from Carson Parks easy listening track that you get here to the Velvet Underground’s “Venus in Furs”.   The Denver band (Nick Urata, Tom Hagerman, Jeanie Schroder, and Shawn King) takes its name from a Nadsat word for young girl out of A Clockwork Orange. Their music is often a mash of Romani, Greek, Slavic, Bolero, and Mariachi influences with punk and folk.
