Introducing Les Shelleys

so a decade ago, it was cool to be amongst the "the" band (Hives, Strokes, Vines, etc) now the bands are trying to get around that stigma by going French with "Les?" (Sages, Shelleys...)

Well anyway, here's some basics on Les Shelleys (best translation, The Shelleys, ya tough one i know).

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 (of Correatown).

Apparently, the duo focuses on the intermixed vocals of the man/woman parts and gets some intricate harmonies. They're out on tour supporting their s/t debut on Fat Cat, and you'll likely not be surprised to find out another Shelley, Shelley Short is opening
