great athlete

Athlete - a band from where i grew up in london, a little melancholy, but a very moving listen on headphones. listen to wired. the singers mother in a car accident - a tremendous lyrical journey through the emotions one feels when THAT phone call comes in. I've experienced it, this bands words capture it. Expecting great things from these young fellas.

Comcast had an Athlete on demand video featuring a handful of songs and some behind the scenes stuff. Wired was simply amazing.

Despite our digitally connected world, some things just don't immediately translate from one country/region to another. Athlete should be huge in the states.

I saw elsewhere you also liked Hard-Fi in '05. I just heard some of their stuff and scooped up a pair of tickets to see them in NYC in a few weeks. Looking forward to it.
