DeVotchKa are easily one of my favorite newfound bands. Their name may sound Russian, but the Denver-based quartet are indeed American. The band's roots lie in rock, however their music also includes heavy doses of Eastern European folk, mariachi, and punk. Lead singer Nick Urata wins bonus points for lifting the band name from the book (and movie) A Clockwork Orange. Excerpt: “They were getting ready to perform a little of the old in-out, in-out on a weepy young devotchka they had there.”

If you're not yet familiar with DeVotchKa's music, have no fear, I shall point you in the right direction...
