Au Revoir Simone, 'Still Night, Still Light' (Our Secret Record Company)

Critical Mass
Label:

by David Bevan

On their second full-length, this Brooklyn trio returns with more synth-pop secrets fit to be whispered on the moon. Opener "Another Likely Story" sets the mood, dovetailing chilly lunar textures with hushed vocal harmonies to often nap-worthy effect. But the spiraling keyboard dynamics and crescendo that lead to the summit of "Only You Can Make You Happy" evoke a beauty equaled elsewhere by "Anywhere You Looked," a simple drum-machine jaunt with a melody so insinuating that its hook rivals the Postal Service's sharpest.
