Singer/keyboardist Erika Forster (Au Revoir Simone) has released the Jensen Sportag remix of ‘Hidden,’ the first single off her forthcoming self-titled debut EP, due out on July 10th with pop label Cascine. Download the remix at Gorilla vs. Bear, as the Nashville duo take Forster out for a night of high summer magic, “transforming the dream-pop gem into a smoothed out, steamy summer night anthem.” Backed by Jorge Elbrecht of Violens on percussion (who she released a 7″split with last year), Erika fills out her sound in the forthcoming release.

Au Revoir Simone release their stunning new single ‘Another Likely Story’ – complete with remixes from hotter than hot French duo Aeroplane, Neon Indian and Social Disco on December 7th. This is the second single to be taken from their latest album ‘Still Night, Still Light’, and is due for release through Moshi Moshi Records (Florence & The Machine, Casiokids, Lykke Li).

Au Revoir Simone’s Still Night, Still Light isn’t due until next Tuesday, but the Brooklyn-based synth-pop trio is currently streaming the album in its entirety on Myspace Music. Produced by Thom Monahan (Vetiver, Little Joy), the album is the follow up to the keyboard-toting heroine’s 2007 full-length debut The Bird of Music. Gone are their previous releases’ bells and whistles, and in their place is a stark closeness. Featuring some of the band’s most quiet moments (see the glacial grace of “The Last One”) while also containing some of their most raucous (see the dizzying exuberance of “Anywhere You Looked”), it’s easily the band’s finest hour.

Not really much of a write up for you today, but I do have some songs to share. And news on some of the entertainment in store for President Obama’s Inauguration. Sources told the Post’s Lena Sun that Bruce Springsteen will perform at Barack Obama’s inauguration week welcome event January 18, 2008 on the National Mall. The event will be on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and open to the public for free. The Boss has been a bigtime Obama backer and they campaigned together in Cleveland during the general election.
Now for some tunes:
