DeVotchKa lead singer Nick Urata sang “I Cried Like a Silly Boy” on their 2006 cutely-titled Curse Your Little Heart EP. It’s a song that aptly demonstrates the gimmick of a band that combines the sounds of traditional eastern Europe, roma culture, and circus acts — it’s a traveling group of broken hearts and cabaret musicians.

With their latest release, 100 Lovers, from ANTI records, DeVotchKa’s eclectic influences and sounds from the periphery of mainstream music, almost a vintage sound you can call it, resurface, yet their polka-like energy and Ringling-performer heart is worse for the wear.
