Astralón Jukebox 11
Marina Satti, Kendrick Lamar, Sworr, Stromae, Yazz Ahmed, Calexico, Fontaines D.C. and many more artists, sparkled our daily life the previous season.
If you exclude the continuous war in Ukraine and the implications that the Russian invasion caused, spring brought us more stable days after the difficult and exhausting two years of pandemic life.
Our team worked in harmony on new projects, our tasks occurred in rotation with sweet delicacies, while of course new songs and some old favorites were filling our space between video-meetings.
Songs from musicians and bands that were announced for this year’s music festivals and concerts in Athens had definitely their honour, like the powerful new album by Fontaines D.C., Bonobo, Aron Ottington or Calexico to name just a few. A bit of nostalgia brought us the sad news of Depeche Mode’s Andy Fletcher and Vangelis, who passed away, while the addictive new releases by Marina Satti, Rosalía and Stromae electrified us several times (though Anastasia can’t stand anymore listening to the songs of the Belgian pop icon Stromae).
