Song of the Day - November 3, 2006

I love the latest album, Get Yr Blood Sucked Out, from the husband and wife duo Viva Voce. For those who are linguistically curious, Viva Voce is Italian for "word of mouth." Kevin and Anita Robinson's music has been described by some critics as a combination of The Pixies and The Monkees, and I would have to agree. There are pleasant harmonies and hand claps, interspersed with the searing guitar work of Anita throughout the album, the effect is particularly appealing. I enjoyed the almost cult-like opener "Believer," the pop-like "We Do Not *uck Around," and the rollickin' "From the Devil Himself." However, song of the day honors go to "Faster Than a Dead Horse," which had a psychedelic patina, that was intensified by Anita's excellent guitar work and the silly backing chorus.
