Viva Voce Lovers, Lead the Way!

I suppose a husband and wife team such as Viva Voce require some perfunctory comparison to their de rigueur counterparts — the rocking ones who don red and white — but no, Anita and Kevin Robinson sound nothing like Mr. and Mrs. Claus. Viva Voce prefer melodic, kitchen-sink indie pop evocative of the Breeders on ‘ludes and summer crushes. God bless you please Mrs. Robinson for cooing like a six-year-old girl, staring at her shuffling feet while hubby Kev provides the mandatory bah’s and la’s over breezy yet dynamic backing instrumentation. It all sounds so cute, kinda like that chick... whatshername? Meg White. (Asthmatic Kitty)
