The first time the indie-rockers Devotchka penned a score to a movie, they made a pretty big splash with the killer soundtrack to Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris' "Little Miss Sunshine" that they co-wrote with composer Mychael Danna ("Moneyball"). It's been often imitiated and certainly often-reused (just give a listen to "The Winner Is" below which has become a type of go-to score for indie-film trailers). Devotcka frontman Nick Urata composed most of 2009's "I Love You, Philip Morris" score by himself and he's done the same for his reteam with Dayton and Faris, "Ruby Sparks."
