Souvenir Driver inhabits a sonic world of dreamlike disconnect, one that apparently doesn't leave a lot of time for actual dreaming. Just six months after releasing Joy, a quietly gorgeous debut album, they're back with a slim gem of an EP. In addition to not being lazy, nobody can accuse Souvenir Driver of selling themselves short: The EP takes its title from Jeanne Moreau, the greatest living French actress, an ethereal beauty as much as she is an avant-garde pioneer. On Jeanne Moreau, Souvenir Driver have cracked the hushed introspection of Joy, at times clanging straight into old-fashioned shoegaze. The best song, "Slide," is dark and noisy, with chiming guitars and undampened, though still unintelligible, vocals. The question is: Are these the band's favorite four songs that didn't fit the dreampop of Joy? Or will they continue to sharpen this newfound edge? REBECCA WILSON
