Architecture In Helsinki
Fingers Crossed (Trifekta - Bar/None, 2004)
Fingers Crossed takes the cake for the cutest album of the decade. Is there any other way to describe it? Sitting on a list that also features tyrannical sound terrorists like Kevin Drumm, Aufgehoben and John Wiese, Architecture in Helsinki’s debut has done pretty well to hold its ground. The uncomplicated euphoria produced by these songs are just too good and smile inducing and beautifully life affirming. Just goes to show how much of a little kid I still am when it all comes down to it. It’s fortunate that Architecture in Helsinki came along to remind me of that. (Oh, and Sassigrass had to use a fake ID to go see these guys play when she was only 20).
