PETE COTTELL
9 pm., Friday October 25 | $12 advance, $14 day of show.
Doug Fir Lounge
830 E Burnside St.
 
[ELECTRO DREAM POP] Brooklyn electro-pop trio Au Revoir Simone toes the line between dream state and consciousness, blending hushed tones atop canned beats and warm synths that exist on the verge of floating away into the ether. Just as soon as tracks like “We Both Know” and “Boiling Point” threaten to veer 2013’s Move in Spectrums into the realm of music-as-wallpaper, tempos get a shot in the arm with “Crazy” and “Let the Night Win,” tracks that would be outright bangers if the group featured any sort of live instrumentation. The end result may come off as very nice wallpaper that’s as easy to blissfully ignore as it is to soak in with an attentive ear, but you won’t hear me complaining anytime soon.
