    I checked this band out thanks to a remix of "Another Likely Story" by Neon Indian and I have to say the original song is beautiful and not only that but the rest of the album follows that line of tragic beauty.

  1. Thanks to Monahan and the strength of the songs the trio wrote for the album, this stands as Au Revoir Simone's best work so far.
  2. You can slice up its track-by-track constitution--a gently sung, interesting turn of phrase here, an evocative chord progression here--but it is a beautiful, haunting creature as a whole, and a poignant testament to the power of simplicity.

    Opener 'Another Likely Story' sets the mood, dovetailing chilly lunar textures with hushed vocal harmonies to often nap-worthy effect.
