Shelley Short – Time Machine / Submarine

Video: Shelley Short – “Time Machine / Submarine”

We first encountered Shelley Short when she, along with GLONO‘s own Quasar Wut-Wut, opened up for Colin Meloy of the Decemberists at Schubas a few years ago.

MP3: Shelley Short – “Time Machine / Submarine” from A Cave, A Canoo, due October 13 on Hush Records.
