    Officially one of the best press images of a band ever. In the history of ever.
    Two albums into their tenure as the city's favorite purveyors of British Invasion-inspired rock and folk, The Dutchess & the Duke--the brainchild of Kimberly Morrison and Jesse Lortz (who has lately been working with a new band, Case Studies)--are hanging it up. The band's last local show is schedule for November 26 at the Tractor. Though the band hasn't responded to a request for comment, Nick Heliotis, an employee at the band's label, Hardly Art, has confirmed the news:

    "It saddens me to think that they won't be making any more music as the Dutchess & the Duke, but I think we can all agree that they achieved a great deal in just a couple years of being a band," Heliotis said in an email. "I think their two records (2008's She's the Dutchess, He's the Duke and 2009's Sunset / Sunrise) are clearly two of the best records to come out of Seattle in the last several years, and Hardly Art was honored to have been able to put them out."
