Au Revoir Simone's particular brand of gentle keyboard pop actually lends itself quite well to being remixed. On Reverse Migration, a different remixer — everyone from Air's Jean-Benoit Dunckel of Air (under his Darkel guise) to Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor — takes on a different of the thirteen tracks, some adding only gentle flourishes and some creating a whole new sonic landscape of their own. Cheeky French popsters The Teenagers fall into the latter category, morphing "Fallen Snow" into a subtly glitchy electro bump. Dunckel's remix adds typically Air swirling atmospherics and a slow, stuttering rhythm track. Taylor's "Sad Song" remix is a twisted highlight here, a slow build of overlapping synth stabs and a repetitive digital handclaps.
