Just a quick nod to Au Revoir Simone, a trio of Brooklyn girls who make lovely songs with old keyboards. The site has an MP3 download of “Backyards Of Our Neighbours” and you can hear more songs on their Myspace page. (I never thought I’d post a link to Myspace, as the whole experience just makes me feel old and befuddled. Still, that’s my problem, not yours. Or theirs.)
Their 2nd album, The Bird of Music is released on February 19th in Europe and the UK.
