“I hope you’re coming with me,” the women of Au Revoir Simone sing on “Shadows,” a sentiment turned bittersweet, almost fearful, in the hands of Jens Lekman’s string-laden remix. It’s a lush, widescreen production from the so-silent Swede, who dials down his recent dance sensibilities in favor of accentuating “Shadows'” sorrow. Gorgeous. Don’t leave us yet, Jens!
