Song of the Day: DeVotchKa - The Clockwise Witness

DeVotchKa's music career could be considered unorthodox at best. Starting off as the backup band for burlesque shows, they later toured with Dita Von Teese. They later toured after they self released a couple albums, slowly gaining a faithful underground following. They finally got their break with the 2004 release of How It Ends, having their songs appear in movies, and commercials. Their sound is very unique, being classified a gypsy punk infused with indie rock. The results are a great band, with a distinct sound, yet one that can be very accessible. Off of 2008s A Mad & Faithful Telling, is my favorite song of theirs, The Clockwise Witness
