Architecture in Helsinki is a six piece outfit of musical chameleons, formed in Melbourne, Australia, and now scattered across the globe. The band has developed a reputation for sensational live shows and a large, loyal fanbase. With two very successful albums already under their belt (2004's Fingers Crossed and 2005's In Case We Die), Architecture in Helsinki now hit the ground running with their third album, Places Like This. Upon first listen, it's no wonder that blogs and music sites are already chattering away insistently about the record. Places Like This is ten songs of instantly lovable pop brilliance, fizzing with electrical currents, channeling calypso rhythms and tropicalia flavors with lashings of percussion a-go-go. The album packs a kaleidoscopic punch that isn't far from astounding. Pop effervescence hasn't sounded this fresh in ages.
