Admittedly I hadn’t heard of “cello-punk” myself until 5 minutes ago, but Portland’s Absent Minds have done a good job of educating me. The band plays 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″. Word is a new album is in the woks but in the meantime you can stream their “EmergenEP” right here.
