Sometimes, good causes can lead to music that’s just as good and probably would have never came about if said good cause didn’t exist. At least, that’s our feelings after seeing that Keep Shelly In Athens just dropped a cover of Jesus & Mary Chain’s “Just Like Honey.” I mean, sure, the Greek duo is indebted in the sometimes-dreamy nature of the seminal noise-pop outfit.
But yeah, no, I know I didn’t see this one coming. I didn’t see the fact that there’s an entire compilation dedicated to “Just Like Honey” coming either. But apparently it’s purpose is to raise funds for a music lover who wants to run the London Marathon for Breast Cancer Care. You can stream Keep Shelly In Athen’s take on “Just Like Honey” below and purchase the entire compilation on Bandcamp on Feb. 1.
