Portland’s “Cello Punks” Absent Minds have just announced that they are in the studio recording their long delayed full-length album. When finished the release will be put out on North By Northwest Records. We’ll keep you posted as details surface.
If you’re not familiar with the band they play straight up punk (sometimes a little ska-punk) infused with electric cello for a unique, and pretty cool, sound. In their five years playing together they’ve released a self titled full length, an EP, several Northwest punk compilations, and a split 7″. You can stream their “EmergenEP” right here.
