Architecture in Helsinki

Release Date
Track Listing
1.Heart It Races
2.Heart It Races (YACHT Remix)

There used to be a link for this on polyvinyls site, but now this is gone without a trace. It's too bad because I picked this up at their show at studio B this past friday. I'm working on a review for looserecord.com and basically I'm trying to find a nice way of saying it wasn't that great. I think I can talk about their opening band a lot, or that the sound system sucked, but everything that I loved from the hushed falsetto and crazy electronics, phased handclaps, it was all lost. Now I wasn't standing in the front row, but it was kind of a mess. They had great energy, and tried to get everyone into it, but it wasn't translating in the back.
Afterwords I grabbed this seven inch for further research and I can't find it anywhere. It's a 7" with a Yacht remix of 'Heart it races' on the b side. There is a UK 7" with a Bonde de role remix, but that is something else.
Also on boomkat.

Following on from the remixes 12" that came out a week or two back, this 7" features an extra reworking of 'Heart It Races' not included on that release, by mucky Brazillian electro funkers Bonde Do Role. The original production was nuts enough as it was, what with the epic choral sequences and the steel drum calypso-style vibes, but the remix takes things straight into that Diplo-style stratosphere of baile funk wackiness. Ace.

Heart it Races 7" Info:
Rare promotional white sleeve single featuring the album version of "Heart It Races" and the Yacht Remix of the song.


  1. I just picked up a copy of this 7" at AIH's concert at Webster Hall and also have had no luck finding any info about it. Glad to know I'm not alone.

  2. Mike,
    Yea, looking back, that's a pretty crazy pairing of bands.
