Au Revoir Simone
Let me lay it out plainly for you all. When I first saw Au Revoir Simone's video for Sad Song (above), I got hit with a musician crush for all three of these women. Based out of New York, the all-keyboard trio toured Europe this summer. This brought me some hope that they may go on tour in the states soon. It doesn't look like they play much outside of New York City and warm locales, though. I can only hope that something will draw them northward to play in the Cities sometime.
Sad Song has an awesome beat and I love the cadence of the lyrics. Also, whoever directed the video deserves a trophy (and perhaps a pizza too). Beautifully choreographed! Listen above and then click on over to their website for more musical goodness.
