Tonight we have a special show on Poplie Radio. Tune in from 20.00 till 22.00 here for our battle of the Scots..Glasgow vs Edinburgh only from Athens66 on Poplie Radio!


Zooey is back in the Sun with Him

Our beloved Zooey Deschanel has finally announced the release of her sophomore album through her collaboration with M. Ward. She & Him will be releasing Volume Two (what else?) on March 23. They've already released a first single titled In the Sun. The single continues on the sweet country/folk/pop theme set by Volume One (which I simply loved). You all know I'm a big fan of Zooey, so I'm highly anticipating this one. Enjoy!



Athens66 @ Poplie Radio - Take Fourteen

Another show behind us on Poplie Radio. This one was dedicated to Jay Reatard, with a special 20 minutes recap of a small part of this musical genius. Stay tuned next Sunday from 20.00 till 22.00 here. [download link of the show below]



Off to Brighton with Kid Capulet

Kid Capulet are a new band that started off at Sheffield Uni around a year ago. Emilie, Rupert and Alex offer a mix of indie rock in the likes of their influences such as Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Imogen Heap. Their sound still needs some work but I'm sure they are going to find their way especially after a few more gigs. They are actually playing at The Plug in Sheffield on the 25th of February, so if you're around the area be sure to check them out. Until then, here's Brighton from their demo material (more at their Myspace page below).



My Arms filled with Bloodgroup

We discovered Bloodgroup through the usual route (from Music Alliance Pact) as it was I Love Icelandic Music's entry of the month. The band serves the usual electronic pop we come to expect from Iceland. We aired their latest single (My Arms) from their follow-up album titled Dry Land on our latest radio show on Poplie Radio and it seemed our listeners liked it. Check them out as well!

So long our friend...Farewell to Jay Reatard!

I was right about to make a review of the new album from Vampire Weekend, when I stubbled upon the breaking news. Our beloved punker Jay Reatard (Jimmy Lee Lindsey Jr.) died in his sleep at around 3:30 a.m yesterday (Jan. 13) in his home at Memphis. I simply couldn't believe it. I personally loved his punchy punk tunes and free spirit. We even saw him live 2 years ago in Roskilde, where he rocked (at least for a couple of songs before he jumped into the crowd!). Beck and the Pixies where from the first to offer their condolences to his family.

Jay was only 29...


Athens66 @ Poplie Radio - Take Twelve & Thirteen

It's been two weeks now since our last radio show post (somehow I thought I posted it but it seems my mind ain't in the right place this year). So here's a double take of Athens66 on Poplie Radio. Stay tuned next Sunday from 20.00 till 22.00 here. [download link of the shows below]



Raise the BBM for Collider

Collider are an indie rock band from San Francisco and they just sent us their latest (second) EP titled BBM. I think their lo-fi sound is more than worth a few try it below!

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)
