I've Been Gone Far Too Long… is a weathered post-card born by hand and wire through downpours and snowy drifts and sweaty lodges that anticipates the careful scripting of a lengthier, long-overdue letter to come. The Cassettes continue to explore the musical landscapes that they discover, even as this release might betray a longing gaze homeward, toward kith and kin.



The Cassettes– a four or five-piece Choose Your Own Adventure Mystic Country Steampunk Stomp band from Washington, D.C. started by Frodus frontman Shelby Cinca as a solace from his post-punk screaming endeavors. Ballooned from a lineup that originally contained members of Dead Meadow to a group of modern day vagabonds and dreamers consisting of multi-instrumentalists that play theremins, steel guitars, accordions, analog synthesizers, tablas and much more. Also known as a Musical Explorers Society, The Cassettes (a registered trademark), dare to push standard musical structures while maintaining a respectful tip o' the hat to the visionaries of the past. Courage.
