Fleet Foxes summer break

How about a quick Tune of the Day to send us off to summer dreamland? Courtesy of another band that just released a record (their debut actually) a couple of days ago. I'm talking about Fleet Foxes (I'm sure you've read or heard about them lately), who are being named as the next big thing (at least for today...since this seems to change on a daily basis lately). KostasK has just posted about them as well and also included the same fabulous song, Mykonos. The song isn't actually included in their debut album but was released sometime back in February in their Sun Giant EP (from Sub Pop of'course). Check them out on MySpace (perhaps I'll review the album if I find some free time...I've already heard it a couple of times and it's really good). Off we go then...

Fleet Foxes - Mykonos

    (Σιγά μην προλάβουμε βέβαια όλα αυτά..καμμιά 10αριά το πολύ...ανάλογα με τις ποσότητες αλκοόλ)

  • Συνήλθες από τα "μαλακά ναρκωτικά"?? Ή μήπως δεν πήρες ακόμα τη δόση του σκληρού πανκ να ξελαμπικάρεις?? :))

    Το έγραψα και σε μένα, θα το πω κι εδώ: ΦΟΒΕΡΗ φωνή o Robin Pecknold...

  • όντως φοβερή...θα κάνω full review τις επόμενες μέρες..

    επιχείρησα για λίγο electro με Ladytron αλλά ήταν χάλια (next post). Ευτυχώς με έσωσε ο Nick!!

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)
