Number 35: Architecture In Helsinki

The best Australian band since Silverchair! Holy shit these cats are way better than Silverchair. Inspite of being card carrying members of the ADD rock scene (not much of a scene really), AIH could just coast putting together Frankenstein beasts of albums all noise and drastic shifts. Instead they bring surprising sense of coherance to the indie party. All that, and their open ended vibe could be doing more to change the sense of hippie like collectives than even Broken Social Scene (if for no other reason than that these folks seem like hippies). Mostly these guys are the technocolor version of Belle and Sebastian that Belle and Sebastian have tried to be for the ast few years.
