Whether or not you agree American Dreamz With A Z is “overly didactic and liberal in a read-too-many-blogs sort of way” (Slate) and are waiting for your Mandy Moore refund … Omar totally nailed “My Way.” With middle-eastern flavored Sinatra so hott, we were anxious to hear the new mostly-covers EP by DeVotchKa. On Curse Your Little Heart the Denver quartet do “Somethin’ Stupid” and take on VU too. You can hear the latter at Ace Fu:
Most of all we love DeVotchKa’s Siouxsie tune. A song that “Win from the Arcade Fire thought they were destined to cover“?
DeVotchKa – “The Last Beat Of My Heart” (MP3 Link Expired)
Siouxsie & The Banshees – “The Last Beat Of My Heart” (MP3 Link Expired)
Enjoy. (And if you can summarize this season of Idol for us that would be sweet. As usual, we lost track of Mr. Cowell’s karaoke escapism after the freaks in the first two episodes.)
