You know how sometimes the Sugarcubes or B-52s sounded really, really beautiful before the shouty guy (Einar Örn Benediktsson or Fred Schneider, respectively) busted up Björk and Kate Pierson’s vocal cabbage patch? Well, with Brooklynite brunette trio Au Revoir Simone, you needn’t worry. These three ladies summon up Dntel-harkening soundscapes and rhythms, both danceable and sensitive, while harmonizing their vocals from behind their keyboard perches and microphones. Vintage electronics match their vintage wardrobe—the only men these women stand behind are named Roland and Korg. (Duke Shin)
