Rewind is an interesting project released on July 1st from the Spanish website Buffetlibre dedicated to the promotion of pop and electronic music. It is intended as a non-commercial project paying tribute to the golden age of music history of the 80’s. 60 bands have joined up, each making a cover of their favorite 80’s hit. Most of the bands are not well-known (but we will try to introduce some of them in the future here in Athens66 as well), such as Dragonette, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin (yeap..we know these guys), Electric Soft Parade, Levy, Saint Bernadette, Hello Tokyo and The Cloud Room. You can download all 60 tracks (in a zip format) from the website. Be sure to check it out cause it is really worth the time. And here are a few tracks guaranteed to bring back some memories..

Anoraak - Talking In Your Sleep (The Romantics Cover)
Someone still Loves you Boris Yeltsin - Another Satellite (XTC Cover)
