LCD Soundsystem and the Drunk Girls

LCD Soundsystem are back with their new album This Is Happening. We're giving it a run for its money, but until then, here's the first video single titled Drunk Girls. Crazy as always..



20 years ago in Twin Peaks

Ok, I saw this at the Culturist but I simply had to make my tribute to it as well (although a few days late). Last Thursday (April 8th) was the 20th anniversary from the airing of our all-time favorite TV show. Twin Peaks was first aired on the 8th of April 1990 and nothing ever since has managed to surpass it. It still gives me the chills every time I hear Badalamenti's opening track and memories of Laura Palmer start haunting me. Agent Cooper will always be there for us and so will Shelly, Donna, Audrey, Sheriff Harry Truman, Bobby, Big Ed, The Giant, The Asian Man, The Man from Another Place and of'course the mastermind behind this epic series, FBI Bureau Chief Gordon Cole aka David Lynch.

Introducing a Sweet Tooth

Sweet Tooth are a London-based duo consisting of chanteuse Fleurtini and producer Gavin Hammond. They just released a beautiful animated video for their first single Everybody wants to be in Love and are ready to unveil their debut album titled Wow & Flutter very soon. Their sound could be titled film-noir dub but I would rather name it as beautiful melodies to accompany Fleurtini's warming voice. Enjoy..

The Team

Athens66 started off as a common project by a bunch of friends but quickly turned into almost a personal blog (although some remains of previous posts can still be found). Currently, the Team has been narrowed down to two members, who besides being old friends and schoolmates share the same joy for Music, Movies, Alcohol and Pro Evolution sessions.

The sole purpose of this blog is to shout out whatever comes in mind about movies, music, reality, fantasy and all the rest. Nothing posted here is to be taken seriously, but then again what is? Since this blog is still quite fresh, we are definitely open to suggestions and directions (although most of them will just be ignored)
