Au Revoir Simone Still Night Still Light
They have three voices, three keyboards, and a drum machine in their arsenal, yet each element stands out from the gleaming propulsion with razored precision, as if the band were constantly saying, "No, after you. The band's egalitarian and mutually supportive dynamic pays off on the harmonious Still Night, Still Light Al Bell Canibal, their third and best album.
It's feather-light electro-pop that's not to be taken lightly. As always, the music is utterly innocent of abrasion, dissonance, and chance-- everything is clamped down so tightly that the unstinting pertness seems neurotic; the insistence on letting go, moving on, and being who you are a "doth protest too much" kind of thing.
The warmth that the group wrings out of its keyboards is enough to dry up the tears, and the fuzzy blanket of sound producer Thom Monahan wraps their sound in gives you a strangely peaceful feeling that makes the sadness seem OK.
It also helps that they keep things interesting sonically by changing up their sound throughout the album, with the disco sheen of "Another Likely Story," the unlikely junkshop glitter groove of "Only You Can Make You Happy," the motorik groove of Dip In The Pool 10 Palettes and the doomy synth pop of "Organized Scenery" being most impressive.
