Au Revoir Simone's new album Still Night, Still Light is set to be released tomorrow (May 19). I have heard it being compared to 80's new wave sounds - but seriously, they are a band of girls devoted to keyboards - how could it not sound just a little like Depeche Mode or New Order? It is being released as a double album on white 10" vinyl (with codes to download an electronic copy) via the girls own record company Our Secret Record Company.
I like that vinyl has come back. CD just does not work in the digital age. How many times have we all put a CD in our computer and it either won't play due to anti-copyright technology or the computer picks up on every minor scratch. I say down with CD's and yay(!) to vinyl with electronic download codes!
