DeVotchKa spent their early career fostering important musical connections with fellow explorers like Calexico and gypsy punks Gogol Bordello. International tours with Gogol and recordings with Calexico helped spread the band's sound around the globe. DeVotchKa's first major break came when Nic Harcourt of KCRW introduced his listeners to a then unknown rock band on his daily radio show, "Morning Becomes Eclectic." Filmmakers Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton were listening that day, and stumbled upon the sound for their movie, "Little Miss Sunshine." A critical and box office hit, the film was nominated for the Best Picture Oscar, while DeVotchKa's soundtrack earned a Grammy nod.

In writing for the album he would eventually title This Night Falls Forever, frontman Nick Urata tapped directly into his past, connecting the dots between that audience-and-artist relationship and a period of intense self-discovery. "One common thread in these songs is their sentimentality," Urata says. "When you first discover rock and roll, that's usually the same time you’re discovering girls or boys, when everything is so romantic and huge—that era of your life is where these songs are coming from. The songs are usually the same, thematically: why don't you love me, why did you leave me, I don't love you anymore, I miss you, I want to die... there's only a couple themes when you break it down. I've always dealt in romance. I don't know what else to write about."

Santa Fe's Korvin Orkestar plays the incendiary brass music of the Balkans. Inspired by luminary Roma artists and teachers including Demiran Ćerimović (Vranjski Biseri), Nizo Alimov (Kočani Orkestar) and Zahir Ramadanov (Esma Redzepova / Ansambl Teodosievski), the band delves into this deep tradition to elevate audiences with music that is stirring and ecstatic. Featuring Max Kluger-Bell and Nick Kunz on drums and percussion, Alan Kapulski on tuba, Liv Orovich and Dylan Pettigrew on trombone, and William Giaquinto and Char Rothschild on trumpet, the band shares a dedication to Balkan Brass music and a fascination with the changing nature of this living tradition that embraces and embodies the cultures of friends and enemies alike.
