(4/12/09) Monty’s Catch of the Day – Au Revoir Simone


Au Revoir Simone is one of the first and only all female electronic bands around (probably one of the cutest too), and have proven to be a nice gem hailing from Brooklyn. First, if the term Au Revoir Simone sounds familiar, it’s because they took their name from a quote out of Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure – pretty clever. I got to spend some time with the band during SXSW, and they are all very genuine and sweet (and very girly – especially when they were reading the fasion & celebrity magazines during my visit). I was also very privilaged to get a copy of ARS’s new album, Still Night, Still Light, which contains excellent vocals & harmonies accompanied by soft electronics. The album will drop later in May, and expect to see the girls (Erica, Annie, and Heather) in Austin this summer. You can also hear the funny ID mishap right here for a good laugh. Today’s catch is “Another Likely Story”. Enjoy!
