Big Grin Do you like ARCHITECTURE? Want to see some IN HELSINKI?

Ok, I have to say that I'm quite impressed with Architecture in Helsinki's new album, 'In Case We Die'. The music is a 'mix of symphonic and electronic pop' (I stole that from allmusic), and it's so much ridiculous fun that it almost makes you start dancing and smiling crazily the second you hear it.

Anyone else here like them? Anyone? How about all my Australian homies, are they remotely known/popular there? If you dont know who they are, I recommend you check them out post haste.

Here are some links of splendidness about them:

http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/record...e-we-die.shtml

Here's their website, check out the video for 'It's 5!' and partei:

Oh yeah, forgot this:

I like them too. I have both their albums. I posted a thread about them in another forum just the other day.

The video for 'It's 5' is great. Too bad the version on their website is of such poor quality. But I got to see it on Rage when I was in Australia and you could really see how they look all happy and cheerful as they dance around in circles but if you look at them more closely you see that the girl has a bloody nose or the guy has a black eye so it's got this kind of cute creepiness about it.

Very awesome.. almost too weird. But not quite. I don't think. I need to listen more.

Maybe You Can Owe Me and Wishbone are my favs off the new album.

Not sure Nick Cave counts - I mean, he's awesome, but England and Germany have been his homes since forever. I mean, back home in Australia, mediocre pub rock acts rule the roost. It's pretty depressing really.

Augie March are good, but fairly inpenetrable for me.

heh. yeah. Augie aren't super accessible. A band you hear and just know they're really smart, talented guys, but not necessarily want to keep listening to their music. month by month i get gradually more into them... I recommend the songs 'There is No Such Place' and 'This Train is Taking No Passengers. But I just made a thread for them so I shouldn't be discussing them here.

goodnight.

or should I say...

good morning!

It's good
seems a bit more calm than the sometimes freakish 'Fingers Crossed' (which I also enjoy)

I like the song 'Maybe You Can Owe Me'. It makes me feel very twee.
