100 Lovers
Releasing: 1 March (US)

Denver’s DeVotchKa trekked out to the Arizona desert and its atmospheric environs to record their fifth album with producer Craig Schumacher, who has previously worked with Calexico and Neko Case. Not surprisingly members of Calexico appear on 100 Lovers as the two bands have always been rather sympatico aesthetic-wise. The band’s expansive sound seems straight out of film and so it’s a logical outgrowth of frontman Nick Urata’s musical progression that he’s been busy in recent years with soundtrack work, including recent efforts on Little Miss Sunshine and I Love You Phillip Morris.
