Members Of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Parquet Courts, Dismemberment Plan, & More To Join Forces For Brooklyn Rock Lottery 5

I first learned about the music scene roulette known as the Rock Lottery when some industrious creative types in Columbus started throwing their own annual holiday spinoff, the Rock Potluck, about a decade ago. But Rock Lottery, which returns to Brooklyn for the fifth time this December with a star-studded lineup, actually had its root… More »

Au Revoir Simone – “Fade Into You” (Feat Nikolai Fraiture) (Mazzy Star Cover)

Mazzy Star’s “Fade Into You” remains one of the iconic songs of the ’90s, and now Au Revoir Simone have taken on the task of covering it. Though they’ve included the song in live sets, the synth-pop trio went into the studio to record this version, and they brought along a little help: Nikolai Fraiture… More »

Au Revoir Simone – “Boiling Point (Todd Rundgren Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

Studio wizard Todd Rundgren has made a nice habit of remixing other artists in the last couple of years. Following a surprise Lindstrøm rework, his take on “Elephant” by Tame Impala was the best of the many remixes the band did. Now the psych-pop legend has taken on Au Revoir Simone’s “Boiling Point.” It will… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

I interviewed Anton Corbijn once, and he’s a totally lovely human being. I liked his beaten-down Ian Curtis biopic Control and his deconstructed George Clooney spy movie The American. He takes pretty photos. But my god, I don’t think there’s ever been a high-profile music video director shittier or more overrated than he. Corbijn’s whole… More »

Au Revoir Simone – “Crazy” Video

Au Revoir Simone have done something pretty ambitious in their new video for “Crazy,” the single off their upcoming album. The video aims to remake Martin Scorsese’s lesser-known (by Scoresese standards) but excellent 1985 film After Hours with all the characters played by the synth-pop trio of Erika Forster, Annie Hart, and Heather D’Angelo. It’… More »

Au Revoir Simone – “Somebody Who” Video

The reverb-happy, harmony-heavy New York synth trio Au Revoir Simone took four years to follow up their debut album Still Night, Still Light, but that sophomore effort Move In Spectrums is almost here, and now there’s a video for the lightly percolating first single “Somebody Who.” The vaguely disquieting clip, from the directing team HARRYS,… More »

Au Revoir Simone – “Somebody Who”

It’s been four years since Au Revoir Simone have released a proper full-length (2009’s Still Night, Still Light) but they are back this autumn with Move In Spectrums. “Somebody Who” is a soft, whispy dance track but has a backbone of off-kilter synths that make it a slightly unsettling (in a good way!) love jam.

Girl Crisis – “Walk Like An Egyptian” (The Bangles Cover)

As you may remember, Girl Crisis is the Greenpoint supergroup of Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek, Class Actress’s Elizabeth Harper, Au Revoir Simone’s Erika Spring and Annie Hart, TEEN’s Jane Herships, et al, whose rules are many (female-only, YouTube-only, Super 8MM-film only, covers-only) and output is little (two covers a year; female in the summer, male i… More »

Erika Spring – “6 More Weeks”

You’ve seen Erika Spring-Forster in Au Revoire Simone, and Brooklyn’s all-female covers supergroup Girl Crisis, but this is the first music attributed solely to her name, less a -Forster. “6 More Weeks” comes as one side of a split 7″ with Violens. That band’s principal creative force Jorge Elbrecht produces and plays drums on thi… More »
