Shelley Short - "Swimming"
You know, the folks at Portland's Hush Records must just be on the same wavelength as yours truly. They keep putting out music, and I keep lapping it up.
The newest offering from Hush is Portland's own Shelley Short. She's in the folk/pop realm (shock!), and has just about the sweetest voice this side of Kimya Dawson. Her Water for the Day will be released on April 22 but is now available for pre-order. For a sample, check out the lovely "Swimming" from the aforementioned record:
