Australian eight-piece poppers Architecture In Helsinki (pictured in duplicate!) are to contribute tracks to a limited-edition tour EP alongside much-praised New Yorkers Clap Your Hands Say Yeah.
Only 1,500 copies of the EP, a six-track affair, are to be pressed, with Architecture contributing two tracks and Clap Your Hands three. One song will come courtesy of the acts' tour buddies Takka Takka. Sadly for Brits, the EP will only be available on the bands' US tour, which kicks off later this month. Sorry 'bout that.
Only a hundred copies will be available at each gig, too, so American readers wanting a piece of this rare record action should start queuing roughly four hours before doors open.
Tracklisting as follows. All tracks are live recordings.
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - 'Some Loud Thunder'
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - 'Gimme Some Salt'
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - 'The Skin of My Yellow Country Teeth'
Architecture in Helsinki - 'Feather in a Baseball Cap'
Architecture in Helsinki - 'It's 5!'
Takka Takka - 'They Built You Up Too Fast'
