The Loud Report: Viva Voce, "Alive With Pleasure"
Viva Voce's work really underscores how far music production has come lately: they sound as sweetly, sweepingly epic as the Flaming Lips (and rock as intimately as the White Stripes), and they recorded their two or possibly three albums entirely at their home in Portland, Oregon, using equipment not much fancier than what you're using to read this. (Get back to work!) "Alive With Pleasure" vacillates pleasingly between the two extremes of their sound; or there's the very funny music video, which also makes low rent look high.

[In other news, Donald points out to me that The Arcade Fire's great track "Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)" is available for free, in its entirety, at Amazon (along with a bunch of other stuff). If you've only heard TAF's current radio single, you could be forgiven for thinking they were a bunch of trend-aping dullards. "Neighborhood #3" shows them off for the passionate and rangy band they really are.]
