Song of the Day 7/8/08: Architecture in Helsinki - One Heavy February 2008
Notorious twee-irdos Architecture in Helsinki bring us "One Heavy February 2008," a rearrangement of the opening track on Fingers Crossed. The original charmingly sounds like it was recorded on a nine dollar Casio (or a toddler's toy keyboard); in this version, AiH grows up a little - deeper sounds, extended arrangement, some growling vocals and a massive burst of energy. This is prime fodder for a spliced, cut-up version in a live setting - start with the childish charm and transition to the exuberant cowbells and guitar in the 2008 cut. A telling sign of the contrast here: the iTunes genre has transitioned from "Rock" to "WTF?" How apt, whoever is in charge of these things!.
