If you’ve seen the film Little Miss Sunshine, then you should already be familiar with DeVotchKa. The band provided most of the music and score (in collaboration with Mychael Danna) for the film. Their first big break came after the release of their excellent 2004 LP How It Ends. The title track of that LP has since appeared in the trailer for the film Everything Is Illuminated (and for the video game Gears of War 2), as well as eventually on the soundtrack of Little Miss Sunshine.

Below is a video of DeVotchKa performing with the Colorado Symphony at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in 2012. A live album, Live with the Colorado Symphony, was recently released and is available for purchase here. You can stream the rest of DeVotchKa’s discography on Spotify.
