We must all thank Australia for this wonderful gift: Architecture In Helsinki. They’re a spastic indie-pop band composed of five people (formerly six). Architecture In Helsinki uses a wide variety of instruments such as: trumpets, tubas, trombones, saxophones, clarinets, recorders, analog synthesizers, samplers, handclaps, and…the GLOCKENSPIEL!!! They’ve toured with many bands such as Death Cab for Cutie and Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah. Architecture In Helsinki can easily be described in one word: BIZZARE. But the good kind! Their song “It’s Almost a Trap” has been featured on an episode of the new MTV show, My Life As Liz.

My favorite song by Architecture In Helsinki is “Spring 2008“, from the album Fingers Crossed. You can download the song “Like It Or Not (Version Two)” for free on Urban Outfitters LSTN (once again!). It’s a really cool video, you can watch it by clicking the name of the song. You don’t often stumble upon a group as unique as Architecture In Helsinki. They can be very dreamy and soft or high-strung and convulsive. If one band could be compared to Architecture In Helsinki it would be Los Campesinos!

Some of Architecture In Helsinki’s best albums are Places Like This, In Case We Die, and Fingers Crossed. Hopefully they’ll be touring America soon…and producing some new albums! You can visit their MySpace by clicking here. Enjoy!


(P.S.) On Wednesday I’m going to see The Temper Trap with your Cleveland Life Blogger, Halyna…so expect a review on Thursday!
