DeVotchKa - New World



I heard the song New World from A Mad and Faithful Telling by the band DeVotchKa on All Songs Considered and was pretty impressed. This Denver-based four piece indie rock group fuses Romani, Greek, Slavic, Bolero, and Mariachi music with American punk and folk roots and rose to prominence recently based on their 2006 Bonraroo performance and their ensuing work for the Little Miss Sunshine soundtrack. This latest album of theirs was relased in March of 2008.

Here's their Wikipedia entry.

Here are the lyrics:

There's this place that I know
where they say everything slow
You are the one I would take with me
It's the perfect place to be with a girl like you
if you wanted to we could leave right now
It's the perfect time
It's the perfect day we should get away come on let's go

Did you mean what you said?
cause it sounded so true
is real really dead
cause it looks so damn good
Read you loud and clear
I know I'm all done hear
let's go
