I'm ambivalent about Devotchka. Sometimes I really like, sometimes I think it's gimmicky. Here are three songs (not the three I would choose if I had a choice, but); hear what you think:

They're often compared to The Decembrists, which I can hear (in the way I find gimmicky). What band they remind me of is the dearly departed Cousteau, who I loved. Click on "Talking to Myself" off *Sirena.* Holy heartbeat, I love that song.
