Places to Visit is an Extended Play released by British group Saint Etienne in May 1999. It shows the band moving toward the experimental electronic sound that they explored further on their next official full-length release, 2000's Sound of Water. Originally released in 1999 in the US only on Sub Pop, German label Bungalow released a vinyl version in 2000. The German release included as a bonus track "Garage for Gunther", the B-side to "52 Pilot".

Saint Etienne are an English electronic music band from London, formed in 1990. The band consists of Sarah Cracknell, Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs. They are named after the French football team AS Saint-Étienne. Places to Visit Album. Missing lyrics by Saint Etienne? Know any other songs by Saint Etienne?

We all know the kind of places Saint Etienne visit. Or we know about them, at least: locations found only in films from 1964 starring Julie Christie, cafis with Formica furniture, clubs where you might catch a glimpse of a girl who resembles Twinkle. Their last album, 1998’s ‘Good Humor’, despite being a quiet gem and by far their most consistent, was ravaged by those who couldn’t stomach a Cardigans-lite version of an already frothy sonic confection.

I really like the low key vibe on this EPI like it better than foxbase Alpha
Not the strongest tracks from Saint Etienne here on their EP, PLACES TO VISIT. The whole affair seemed too low-key for me, from the rather aimless openers "Ivyhouse" and "52 Pilot" and the closer "Half Timbered" to the wan house of "We're in the City." "Artieripp" is interesting at first, but seems like an interlude that's been stretched a bit too far. On the other hand, "Sadie's Anniversary" has some charm in its spare arrangements. This is an EP of throwaways, but it's worth noting that throwaways from Saint Etienne are still hand and shoulders above the belaboured pop on the radio.
