2011 was a busy year for Alan Palomo of Neon Indian fame, and if his recent New Year’s Eve celebrations are anything to go by, 2012 looks to be just as jam packed. “I played on New Year’s Eve in Dallas,” Palomo begins when asked how he rang in the beginning of 2012. “It was a crazy rave in downtown Dallas with Diplo and Girl Talk and some others. It was a lot of fun. I ended up having an early...

Cameron Bird isn't sounding too hot. Stuffed up, sniffling and in general, quite depleted, Bird is suffering from a bad cold. "The road, you know?" says Bird dryly in between sniffling. It's an elusive comment, but one that makes total sense if you were to take a look at hometown heroes Architecture In Helsinki's recent touring schedule.

I firmly believe that they belong on folk albums found in op-shops and buskers playing in...

Northcote's favourite sons, and, uhh, daughter, are hitting back to home soil to perform a series of intimate concerts.

 

After recently showcasing material from the magnificent Moment Bends at the national Groovin' The Moo festivals and a brief run of headline dates, Architecture in Helsinki are set to return after completing a gargantuan tour encompassing the USA, Russia,...

Architecture are a radically different band these days to the clattering ensemble of cardigan-wearing goof balls that released Fingers Crossed in 2003. They are now synth-rocking goof balls; inexplicably popular, somewhat po-faced goof balls who write ridiculous songs like Escapee – complete with farting bass notes and hollering backing vocals, elements that would be funny if they weren’t so...

"Am I guilty? Boy, you decide." It's a legitimate question raised within the impossibly catchy hook on sorta-lead single Contact High.
