I like the music, the band, the lyrics, the artwork and, of course: the signatures! Lucky me got one of only a few signed copies. Athlete’s Black Swan lacks the density and catchy / tricky tunes (especially ‘In Between 2 States’) of Beyond the Neighbourhood but nevertheless contains some well forged songs. Recommended tracks: ‘The Getaway’, ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’ and ‘Rubik’s Cube’. And don’t forget to head over to Alan’s site if your interested in a collection of unreleased or live Athlete tracks.
Next show in tiny ol’ Switzerland (I’ll be there): October 20th in Lucerne
