Planting the seed

“We think about it as a team,” she said. “Watching so many bands for so long and standing in the audience, I was like, ‘I want to try that.’ After playing by yourself for so many years and seeing what level you can reach with so many musicians coming in, you pretty much have to.

Athlete - Beyond the Neighbourhood

None October 4th, 2007




"Beyond the Neighbourhood," the latest album from London electronic indie-rock band Athlete, is a fun and sometimes morose cinematic pop record. Although Athlete has only been around since 2003, it has made a huge critical impression in the United States and Europe.


Combining tasteful doses of electronic glitch pop, dancey drums and sing-along lyrics, "Beyond the Neighbourhood" easily could find a home in a club or your car. The second track on the album, "Hurricane," has a catchy, addictive chorus. "Flying Over Bus Stops" is haunting, with simple vocals, electronic drums and notes echoing and reverberating, building but never quite topping off.


Athlete is a bit like the band VHS or Beta, and if you can't put your Grandaddy CD away, you might want to pick this up and give Gramps a rest.
