Au Revoir Simone - Fallen Snow

You know your boy loves to be timely and since Philly, NYC and the East Coast are expecting snow tomorrow I had to drop this new song, "Fallen Snow." Actually, it's all about Au Revoir Simone dropping their new album and getting a remix from another of the big name indie band, The Teenagers. The album version has grown on me, as it features great female vocal harmonies, nice circus-y organ, a nice minimalist sound. It's the lyrics that have made the biggest impression, as they're much darker than the song sounds. Favorite line: "The chill is strong and nothing seems/To thaw the icy sentiment/Of love that's gone once winter's spent." Dedicated to RV. The Teenagers kill it with the remix, although it's not a indie club banger by any means. It's kind of reserved in fact, but not in a bad way. They give the original a pulse, chop up the vocals a lot and bring some subtle synth to bear.
-It may be heard to think about pools and parties with the wind that's been blowing in NYC the past few days, but Apocalypse Wow! is the new party put on by Dreamburger and Lost Penguin with Ms. Lauren Flax spinning. Is it true that there's a heated pool, steam room and sauna available? I'm actually not totally positive this is true, but I do know that some of the best bangs in the world will be on display tonight, be there NYC.
-Massive Check Yo Ponytail tonight with Pound for Pound favorites Lo-Fi Fnk playing live, along with Young Knives. There's also a DJ set by the dudes from Snowden, along with the regular goodness from Franki Chan and Paparazzi. It all goes down at Safari Sam's (5214 Sunset Blvd), be there LA.
-Finally, get inmypants. I don't know much more than the flier says, but oh what a flier it is! S+M in colonial times, I'm in. It all goes down at Upstairs at Sal's, be there Philly.
-No links yet, but just want to warn America to get ready for Daft Punk this summer. Daft fucking Punk!
