Keep Shelly in Athens at FFF Fest (more by Tim Griffin)
Keep Shelly in Athens

Greek duo Keep Shelly in Athens made their way over to North America earlier this month for Fun Fun Fun Fest where they played their first-ever US show in the early afternoon at Auditorium Shores. They then played their 2nd US show later that night downtown as part of one of the afterparties.

They've since been on a short tour with Body Language that hits Bowery Ballroom on November 18. Tickets are still on sale and we're also giving away a pair. Details on how to enter to win them are below.

We're also premiering Blackbird Blackbird's remix of KSIA's "Our Own Dream," off the 12" EP of the same name which came out on November 5 via Forest Family. You can download their remix and the original at the top of this post and check out the EP's artwork and tracklist at the bottom. Like most of KSIA's work, "Our Own Dream" is a dreamy piece of downtempo. On their remix, Blackbird Blackbird replace the song's swaying beat with a 4/4 headknocker and fill it out with synths that can't help but remind me of LCD Soundsystem's "Dance Yrself Clean."

Speaking of Body Language, you can catch them again after the Keep Shelly in Athens tour when they open for Matt & Kim and Super Mash Brothers at their New Year's Eve show at Hammerstein Ballroom. Tickets are still on sale.
