Architecture in Helsinki - Fingers Crossed (2003)

This record is, quite simply, a joy to have in one's collection. If it were an occurrence in nature, it would be an aurora. The music seems to float above the very soundwaves it exists in. Every track is different, and yet they all seems to flow together seamlessly. A plethora of musical instruments partner up with an ever rotating cast of voices to create a spectrum of sound that is few and far between in today's music scene. Choice tracks include "Scissor Paper Rock," "The Owls Go" and "Souvenirs," but in my humble opinion, just start at the beginning and let it ride. It's a keeper.

For fans of: of Montreal, Broken Social Scene, Los Campesinos!
