aaamusic | On 17, Oct 2010
Les Shelleys are an acoustic guitar/vocal duo from Los Angeles, consisting of FatCat’s folk asset Tom Brosseau and his singing partner Angela Correa, better known as the indie-pop singer/songwriter Correatown. Their eponymous debut album together is a collection of tracks taken from a vast body of recorded works – beautiful, harmony-heavy voice and guitar arrangements of American standards and folk traditionals from various points of the last century. Eponymous album released through FatCat, 8th November.
Leche, meanwhile is the new full length from New York’s Meredith Godreau under her Gregory And The Hawk alias, and is released through FatCat on 15th November. Demonstrating the distance travelled from her gentle, pop-inspired roots, Leche showcases her strong sense of rhythm and otherworldly melodic hooks.
Both bands hook up for a short run of co-headine shows in November as follows (except *Les Shelleys only). More tbc.
