These are difficult economic times for the United States and its citizens. Unemployment has hovered around 9% for months. Our infrastructure is in desperate need of repair. The homeless man who hangs out by that Mexican fast-food restaurant seems to have completely given up… on trying to keep his pants hoisted. Such a disheartening environment can naturally only be remedied by one thing: an escapist foray into the inimitably cheerful land of twee with Architecture in Helsinki!
Beginning November 2, the band from Down Under will be touring the US alongside the equally sprightly DOM, in a synergistic attempt to lift everyone’s spirits. And if your spirits are already lifted, they will be lifted even further, until the unmistakable spirit of musical euphoria has wafted over you and elevated your metaphysical presence to heights rivaled only by the most potent entactogen. Or you might just get really pissed off. It depends on your frame of mind.
