Devotchka - A Mad and Faithful Healing (2008)
When it rains, it pours. Devotchka started as a backing band for a Burlesque Show. The name is a part of the colloquial language used by the Alex and his Droogs in "A Clockwork Orange" by Anthony Burgess. It means "young girl" in Russian. I'm not sure if it's a positive or negative diminutive, but it's there. The haunting nature of Alex in the book is reproduced in style by Nick Urata's voice. This is their newest offering. Leave a little light on if you're listening alone.
