Updates: Shelley Short, Laura Gibson

2011 11 21 13:49

Shelley Short has just released a new album, Then Came The After,  and it’s a stunner.

For now, get it exclusively from Flippin Yeah Industries.  Shelley is on tour in Australia NOW!  Tour dates below.

Meanwhile Laura Gibson is ramping up to release her third studio recording La Grande on Barsuk Records January 24th.

HUSH is so proud to see these women grow onward and outward with their music!

Here is a note from Laura:

I have been gearing up to present the new record in January. I’ve been waiting so long to share these songs and it’s finally feeling like a reality. Now, as most people are drawing indoors and into themselves, I have been looking outwards, and dreaming up the first run of shows for the new record (including an extra special record release party in Portland on February 3). I’ve included tour dates below (more to come). I am thrilled to be sharing many of these shows with one of my favorite bands, Breathe Owl Breathe. If you don’t already know BOB’s music, you’re going to fall in love.

I will be playing these shows as a 4-5 piece band (including percussion, flute clarinet, bass, piano, lap-steel, and 3-part harmonies).

The first song, and title track from the new record, is up at Paste!

Carlos Forster – “Slouching Towards Reality” Video Premiere

2011 09 23 08:53

From Prefixmag:

It’s funny how things work out sometimes for artists, particularly when they attempt to stop creating. For San Francisco’s Carlos Forster, that moment came a few years ago. The former For Stars frontman decided to quit writing music and focused on obtaining a degree in psychoanalysis. And even though his intensive courses kept him busy, he couldn’t shake his art.

The bug gave him another bite during a trip to the Northwest to visit a friend. That friend happened to be the recently prolific M. Ward, whose output must have inspired Forster to start playing again. They would quickly begin working on what would end up being Forster’s recently released full-length album, Family Trees, which features production and back-up vocals from Ward.
