DeVotchKa – “100 Other Lovers” (Stereogum Premiere)

Last we heard from DeVotchKa, frontman Nick Urata had composed the soundtrack to just-released-stateside Jim Carrey/Ewan McGregor comedy I Love You Phillip Morris. Urata and the rest of the band had also finished recording their latest album at Wavelab Studios in Tucson. Urata works on film scores frequently, something you can hear on tracks like “100 Other Lovers.” I love the reversed flutes, as well as the darting violins. It gives “100 Other Loves” a cinematic quality, although it works a simple, romantic piano pop song as well. The title makes me think it isn’t so romantic though.
