Album Review:
Devotchka-100 Lovers

I have absolutely nothing positive to share about the new album by Devotchka.    A few moments occur during a few songs on the 100 Lovers LP where you think it might get interesting, but the singer quickly douses your hopes like an autocratic David Byrne at his most tyrannical taking all the fun out of a band that wants to experiment with eastern European melodies and flamenco.    If you're looking for a similar sound that is effective, loose, and gorgeous, I still highly recommend anything by Beirut, which, I believe, is the sound that this band wishes it could emulate.    In summary, stay away from this album.
