Playlist: Au Revoir Simone

With their three-keyboard sound, gossamer melodies, and girlishly detached delivery, Brooklyn's Au Revoir Simone gets our vote for pop group of the summer (we also like their complementary but never overly coordinated, vaguely retro outfits). As the trio—Heather D'Angelo, Erika Forster, and Annie Hart—is currently touring Japan and Europe, we asked the group for their top-ten travel songs. Here they are:

1. ABBA, Lay All Your Love on Me
2. Metronomy, Black Eye/Burnt Thumb
3. Air, Napalm Love
4. Peter Bjorn and John, Objects of My Affection
5. Lavender Diamond, You Broke My Heart
6. Camera Obscura, Razzle Dazzle Rose
7. Matt and Kim, Dash After Dash
8. Mates of State, All Day
9. Dirty on Purpose, No Radio
10. Liz Phair, Divorce Song
