Shelley Short – “Time Machine Submarine” Video, Album out Oct 13

A stop motion video created by Shelley Short (probably with a little help from video whiz Alexis Gideon) for her song “Time Machine / Submarine” from A Cave, A Canoo out Oct 13 on HUSH. Trés mignon!


A Cave, A Canoe


Time Machine / Submarine
Hard To Tell
A Cave
Tap The Old Bell
How Was The Water?

Additionally, Shelley will be touring the west coast backing Tom Brosseau with electro-acoustic-ambient composerEthan Rose (who is incidentally releasing a gorgeous album with Laura Gibson, also this Fall.) One can only guess the mellifluous songs of Brosseau will be transported to an intriguing sonic place.

Laura Gibson on NPR’s World Cafe & Shadows On Parade Video


Laura shares and plays on World Cafe, a widely syndicated NPR program.

Have a listen.

While you’re there at NPR, take in the splendor of “Shadows On Parade”  The Mar 19th “Song Of The Day” from Beasts of Seasons.

“Opening amid feedback squalls, the song quickly offsets the dissonance with harp-like strums on an acoustic guitar, setting the tone for a somber, dreamlike journey that drifts along gently while retaining its muted beauty.”

Speaking of “Shadows on Parade”, I made what I would call an official fan video for the track, which can be seen right here:
