DOWNLOAD: Au Revoir Simone - Shadows (Jens Lekman Remix) (MP3)
Just like nearly every other Brooklyn band, Au Revoir Simone is playing this weekend's Northside Festival. Their show is Thursday (6/24) at Warsaw, where they play with The Hundred in the Hands and CALLmeKAT. The ladies are then heading off on a short summer tour of North America in July. All dates are at the bottom of this post.
Meanwhile, on July 6 Au Revoir Simone release Night Light, a compilation of tracks from last year's Still Night, Still Light that have been remixed by the likes of Neon Indian, Aeroplane, Angel Deradoorian, Jens Lekman, Your Twenties, Tanlines and more. You can download the Jens Lekman remix of "Shadows" at the top of this post which is one of the more idiosyncratic on the compilation, turning the 4/4 time song into a string-laden waltz.
