Sometimes it’s nice not to have to interpret your music. Just let it come, and be a part of the day. Voyces is that kind of band. Light, almost folk-y rock. Check out Kissing Like It’s Love, the obvious single off of “Get Him, Eat Him.” If the 1970s starlight-and-moonbeam vocals don’t pull you in, make sure you stick around until the incredibly intricate, beautiful guitar break, which features one of the best gentle solos I’ve heard in a long while. If you are a big fan of Rhino’s “Hit Sounds of the 70s,” then you won’t want to miss this album. Songs like Top of My Lungs would clearly have been huge hits back then, both because of the musical style and the refrain (“I’ll be all right again, baby, soon as I get back home . . .”) Check it out on a rainy Sunday.
For fans of: Belle & Sebastian, Magic Numbers.
P.S. Thanks to Amy for turning me on to this band. Her review is better than mine, too, so go read it!
