Daily Download: "Through the Backyards," Au Revoir Simone

This song is from "Verses of Comfort, Assurance, and Salvation," the debut release by New York-based, all- female keyboard trio Au Revoir Simone. The melody is nothing special, and the flat, uninflected vocals seem designed to deflect rather than hold your attention, which is just as well because the charm of the track is in the glimmering of electronic sound around the edges, like crickets on a perfect summer night.
