Au Revoir Simone’s recently released “Somebody Who” suggests an ever so slightly more up tempo direction for the band’s new album. Nothing dramatic, but there’s a touch more energy to the new track that pierces through the dream haze of their older work. I’m genuinely glad this trio is coming back after a lengthy absence, punctuated only by last summer’s solo EP by lead singer Erika Spring. Below are 2 fantastic remixes from their 2009 album Still Night, Still Light by Jens Lekman and Neon Indian:
Move In Spectrums will be available 9/23 (EU) on Moshi Moshi and 9/24 (US) on Instant Records.
Mood maximalists SLEEP ∞ OVER are a refreshing find. The trio churns out that kind of reverb enhanced music that I adore so much. Originally released on the now sold out cassette compilation Dark As Night from Bathetic Records, the track ‘Your World Is Night’ traffics in a beautiful kind of mood that rests somewhere in between bliss and paranoia. Sparse percussion, undulating tones and echoed vocals make for an excellent track.
