Keep Shelly In Athens (2010-2013)

Keep Shelly In Athens have been hosted at this blog before (although the download link is not valid). Since then, they have released numerous releases, and most importantly, they played at the Coachella music festival. They keep rising steadily, making local fans and musicians feel really proud. This is how The Guardian described KSIA's sound: "...If St Etienne are about evoking memories of a London so idyllic it's almost illusory, Keep Shelly do the same for every European beach resort, from Ayia Napa to Ibiza. This is the sound of lack and loss, of what My Bloody Valentine termed "emptiness inside". It'll transform your recent holiday romance into the most resonant bliss imaginable."

In Love With Dusk (2010)
This is the debut 12" EP released by Forest Family Records for only 500 copies.What Pitchfork said for the album: "...downtempo, Balearic-tinged sounds that sound like what would happen if someone tried to remake Air's Moon Safari to correspond with the present day's fashions..."

Our Own Dream (2011)
A second 12" EP for Forest Family Records.FF Records presenting the album: "Almost a year after their debut, the aptly-named In Love With Dusk, Keep Shelly In Athens will be returning with 12” EP Our Own Dream. The Grecian downbeat-pop duo meanders through almost-forgotten electronic salad days and R&B beats of yesteryear. Melding an Ibizan ethic with new age, atmospheric synthesizing, KSiA continues to push the convention of electronic music to the brink, a challenge to the Balearic norm. Like their previous releases, the duo continues the erotic down-tempo tones and visceral back-beats, however at times Our Own Dream heats up—containing well-formed torrid, trance beats to compliment the soft female vocals. Forest Family is proud to announce this 12” EP will be released on white & silver vinyl in a very limited fashion of 500 (250 each color)."

Tracklist:
1.Lazy Noon
2.Our Own Dream
