Keep Shelly+Deerhunter+Tennis+Delorean

If I ran a radio program then Keep Shelly In Athens would be played every hour like a brand new Missy Elliot single on a top 40 station. The synth work should be up everyone’s alley and vocal is brave and refreshing.

Any Bradford Cox fan is going to be excited about this announcement of a leaked single from Deerhunter’s new LP that is coming in September. Time after time these guys nail it, they should be sitting where bands like The Decemberists and Apples In Stereo sit as staple acts for this generation in “indie” music.

It took me a few songs to warm up to Tennis, the first few didn’t grab me as much as this song did, maybe its the Stereolab memories this song brings back that made me melt, loving the singing style, makes me want to meet the lovely lady that sings in the group.

Delorean doesn’t get enough credit for what they do, they literally are keeping that Passion Pit/MGMT sound afloat in my book, they keep that indie party sound attractive.

your assessment on Delorean is spot on, Ive been following them for about 2 years now, and just got to see them for the first time in Chicago. And i feel the same way, they’re definitely keeping that kinda sound alive!

Wow, thanks for the heads up on Keep Shelly in Athens. Kinda reminds me of Bonobo’s older stuff, but with more hip-hop sampling techniques.
