Editors’ Notes

Reverse Migration is an uneven but enjoyable remix of the debut by Brooklyn’s Au Revoir Simone, The Bird of Music. The project boasts both impressive interpretations and tepid makeovers, and 11 tracks become 14, as three songs get double treatment. The airy, dreamy quality of the electro-pop trio is retained in these faithful remixes; you won’t hear the Knife imbuing “Stars” with their dark sinisterism, although the Teenagers’ take on “Fallen Snow” is not exactly rainbows and unicorns. Tracks featuring acoustic guitars (Slow Club’s “The Lucky One” and Keith Murray’s “Don’t See the Sorrow”), harder, fractured synth sounds (Mark-Anthony Tieku’s “The Way to There”) and subdued electric guitar (Matt Harding’s “Night Majestic”) are adventurous translations, while others cling too closely to the original to be of real note. The fun here is in realizing the remix artist’s vision, and seeing if it syncs with your own. But who would claim that Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor missed the boat on his mini-epic re-wiring of “Sad Song?” We can’t imagine.

Catchy, and beautiful only begins to cover every track on this album(:

Excited to see what the Future will bring...

This album has an over all good sound that flows quite nicely through each track. A good one to put on from start to finish. At the same time, there are quite a few favorites, and quite a few that drive me to push, "next". A few songs sound pretty young, (sad song, night majestic, )...not sure how to describe that better. "The Way to There" has great dynamics and for being as simple as it is...has a very big sound. "Fallen Snow" is annoying at first but ever so catchy...this one we will hear on the radio or on the hipster dance floor. Give it a listen, its worth it.


Great new sound on these tracks!! Looking forward to your next album!!

The Brooklyn indie pop outfit Au Revoir Simone features Heather D'Angelo (vocals/drum machine/keyboard), Erika Forster (vocals/keyboard), and Annie Hart (vocals/keyboard). Borrowing their name from a minor character in the Tim Burton comedy Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, the Casio-centric group came together in late 2003, when Forster and Hart befriended one another while traveling by train from Vermont to New York. From there, they became fast friends and began writing songs together. D'Angelo and Sung...
