DeVotchKa to perform on BBC's Later... with Jools Holland on April 15

The acclaimed American band DeVotchKa will be performing on BBC 2's "Later ... With Jools Holland" TV show on Tuesday 15th April at 10.00pm (live show) and Friday 18th April at 11.35pm.

DeVotchKa - "leading the charge of Eastern Bloc indie pop" according to Word Magazine - is a four piece multi-instrumental and vocal ensemble fusing Romani, Greek, Slavic, Bolero, and Mariachi music with American punk and folk roots. The band received a 2006 Grammy Award nomination for Best Compilation Soundtrack for their contribution to the soundtrack of the enormously applauded independent movie "Little Miss Sunshine".

Their new album "A Mad and Faithful Telling", released through ANTI records - home of such notables as Tom Waits, Neko Case and Mavis Staples - on March 17th, has received rave reviews in the British Music Press. Uncut called the record "Splendid, demented folk. Riddled with great tunes and gorgeous lachrymose ballads, granting the album a 4/5, while The Observer stated that "the band deliver these exultant, extraordinary songs, ... rousing , majestic, they seem to have been here forever, just waiting to be heard." giving the album a 5/5.

The Guardian called the songs "epic and emotional" 4/5 and NME warned the audience about being "hopelessly DeVotchKa'd on the first listen", granting the album an 8/10.
