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.
