Places Like This songs Product Information
Places Like This album for sale by Architecture In Helsinki was released Aug 21, 2007 on the Polyvinyl label. Recorded in a Brooklyn basement, Architecture in Helsinki's 2007 album, PLACES LIKE THIS sounds it like should've been created in a sunny clime such as southern California, the Caribbean, or even the group's native Australia. A giddy, celebratory outing, PLACES finds AIH mastermind Cameron Bird leading his ensemble through a set of largely upbeat tunes that reveal a kinship with experimental-leaning dance-pop, both past (the funky Talking Heads/Tom Tom Club-influenced "Hold Music") and present (the beat-driven "Heart It Races" recalls the Knife circa DEEP CUTS, with a little Jens Lekman thrown in for good measure). Places Like This CD music contains a single disc with 10 songs. ...See Full Description

||A little silly, more than unique, perfect summer record.|
After two similar (yet awfully original and exciting) albums AiH has refined their efforts into a more marketable pop-oriented album with "Places Like This". This isn't to say the band has lost their unique sound and vision - indeed, it's still in strong form on tracks like "Lazy (Lazy)", "Feather in a Baseball Cap", and especially the outstanding leadoff single "Heart It Races". As with their previous work, some songs fall quite flat amid a dischordant melange of sounds, but it's that very quality the make the rest so wonderful. Pound for pound it's one of the sunniest summer pop records this year!
