The cool spaceship pop of Au Revoir Simone no longer seems quite as distinctive now that all those other synth-drenched bands have risen in their wake over the past few years, but the Brooklyn trio's expert songwriting still sets them apart. All three members—Erika Forster, Annie Hart, Heather D'Angelo—coax mentholated buzzes and waterfall tones from their synthesizers, and their rhythms have grown continually more assertive and less robotic since their 2005 debut. Their newest album, Move in Spectrums, might be their best so far, full of smart, sophisticated pop that doesn't hide any of its pleasures on the first listen, but reveals subtleties and contagious hooks with each one after. With all three ladies taking turns on lead vocals, Au Revoir Simone remains a trinity of pleasure. NED LANNAMANN
