Au Revoir Simone play female keyboard-based electro-pop; had this record come out at the same time as the Postal Service’s Give Up, they would’ve been huge. As is, this year’s Verses of Comfort, Assurance and Salvation is a mellow, pretty album that doesn’t ask for much. Just a pair of ears and a half-hour, and I think after hearing these songs you’ll probably be willing to provide that.
