Details

[Edit]

A decade into their steadily building career you can still hear echoes of the cabaret backing-band that DeVotchKa once were as they meld Latin, Balkan, French, and gypsy sensibilities with rock n’ roll. Much of their appeal rests on the yearning, impassioned vocals of singer and guitarist Nick Urata. Singing in a distinctive and seductive mumble on shimmering pop numbers “All the Sand in All the Sea,” “100 Other Lovers,” and “Exhaustible” the emotion is always clear even if the actual words are not. There is much to savor here instrumentally as well, including the energetically strummed Spanish guitar and mariachi horns of “Bad Luck Heels,” the tango-tinged rhythm of “Ruthless,” the brass, accordion, and propulsive percussion of “Contrabanda,” and the ringing spy-film guitar line prominent on “The Man from San Sebastian.” The album closes with the instrumental “Sunshine,” a gorgeously textured track that neatly sums up the band’s spacious sound. Cinematic, sweeping, and carefully structured, the many styles on display on 100 Lovers translate into something idiosyncratic yet accessible.
