Viva Voce+Cut Off Your Hands


Portland’s Viva Voce make a lot of noise for two people on their latest, Rose City, which swirls with lush post-shoegaze guitars, throbs with groovy drum-circle percussion, and shimmers with handsome male-female vocals. Cut Off Your Hands, from New Zealand, bring a refreshing sense of romance to the choppy dance-punk sound taken up by 9 out of every 10 young indie groups these days. With English folkie James Yuill.
