Greece duo Keep Shelly in Athens have a new album on the way called “Now I’m Ready” with a new lead vocalist Myrtha, who replaced the band’s previous singer, Sarah P. Set to drop in October, the new eight-track record is the follow-up to their superb debut “At Home” LP, released back in 2013 via Cascine. The album’s title track, a collaborative tune with Corinth-based duo Ocean Hope, is exactly the sort of dreamy-melancholic pop that Keep Shelly in Athens does so well. Give it a spin above, and drive slow.

Keep Shelly in Athens’ new album “Now I’m Ready” drops on October 6th via Friends Of Friends. You can pre-order your copy here.

It’s been four years since Parisian duo Housse de Racket, comprised of Pierre Leroux and Victor le Masne, put out their last album, but they’re finally back today with a new song called “The Tourist”. And it’s about as catchy as it gets. “The Tourist” is the first taste off their forthcoming third album of the same name, the follow-up to 2011’s “Alesia” on Kitsuné, produced by the legendary Philippe Zdar. Described as “a state of mind, a motionless journey,” the 11-track record was entirely recorded in guitarist/vocalist Pierre Leroux’s new apartment in Montmartre. As they say: “Music is a trip and we’re all tourists.”

Housse de Racket’s new album “The Tourist” drops on October 30th on Kus Kus / !K7 Records Records. Pre-order it here.

London-based producer Sam Shepherd, aka Floating Points, has shared a great new video for “Silhouettes”, comprised of music from his 10-plus-minute track “Silhouettes (I, II & III)”. The experimental video was directed by Pablo Barquín and Junior Martínez. In their own words: “An oscillating stream of light attempts to intrude on an arid natural landscape, abstract light and a living environment merge, reacting to the dynamics of the music. The luminous abstract forms are produced by a light painting machine that, frame by frame, draws in a real environment the 3D animated figures.”

“Silhouettes (I, II & III)” is taken from his forthcoming debut album “Elaenia”, set to drop on November 6th via his newly-launched label Pluto and Luaka Bop. Pre-order it here.
