Keep Shelly In Athens | Madmen Love

Keep Shelly In Athens released a new 7-inch single, “Madmen Love”, now available via Sixteen Tambourines Records and Cascine. There’s an edge to this new track, compared to the duo’s earlier work. A menacing bass-tone underlines the song, electrified percussion clanks and echoes behind lead vocals gilded with peril. “Madmen Love” is the A-Side to “Time Exists Only to Betray Us” and an apparent full-length to follow. Follow Keep Shelly In Athens at facebook. – David D. Robbins Jr.

KEEP SHELLY IN ATHENS | Just Like Honey

It says a lot about a band, that 27 years after a song is created, we still find it touches us. A new project presents eleven versions of one song, The Jesus And Mary Chain’s gorgeous, “Just Like Honey” for a cause. Listen to Keep Shelly In Athens’ ultra-quiet re-working of the song below. Go to bandcamp and listen to 10 more, by groups with sounds as varied as KidCity, Glisk, Oh Minnows, and We Are Enfant Terrible. Be sure to visit the Just Like Honey website which seems to be sponsoring the whole project. Profits from the “Just Like Honey” charity covers compilation will be donated to Breast Cancer Care. A track costs around £1 or $1.50 U.S., but you can give more to support the charity. -- David D. Robbins Jr.

MMOTHS | Heart (f. Keep Shelly In Athens)

A gorgeously gossamer track from Ireland’s MMOTHS called “Heart” gets a re-working, thanks to the additional work of Keep Shelly In Athens, including vocals from Sarah P. The steady drip of rain, the vibration of the keyboards chords, the stuttered bass beat, and her voice all work together to make the track feel light and airy as vapor and daydream. You can download the song for free via MMOTHS’ facebook link. – David D. Robbins Jr.

Elegant electro-pop duo Keep Shelly In Athens announced a limited-release date of Nov. 8 for their upcoming 12-inch EP, “Our Own Dream”.

ABADABAD (Remix); Side B: 1. DIY, 2. Fairytale, 3. a) The Rouge Superhero b) Ready To Pay The Price. The first single, “Lazy Noon”, follows the band’s debut EP, “In Love With Dusk”. The song is a sumptuous loungecore getaway, with spaced-out synth and jazzy bass. Follow the band on twitter. – David D. Robbins Jr.
