Au Revoir Simone, 'The Bird of Music' (Our Secret Record Company)

6
The Bird of Music
Critical Mass
Label: Our Secret Record Company

by Shannon Zimmerman

This all-female trio would like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony -- though the world they inhabit is akin to that of a Phillip K. Dick novel, where the robots are more real than the humans. Opening with a beatific, otherworldly campfire sing-along ("The Lucky One"), they move on to a percolating mash note to Gary Numan ("I Couldn't Sleep") and a deliciously icy tribute to Brian Wilson ("Fallen Snow"). Powered by vintage keyboards, a lockstep beat box, and gorgeous, wide-eyed warbling, the Simones create make-out music for your inner android.
