New Recruit: Portland Cello Project

17 Feb


Portland Cello ProjectIndependent label Kill Rock Stars announced late last week that they had added a new act to their roster, namely the Portland Cello Project. A self described “independent orchestra” the PCP (heh) is deft if not occasionally loosely bound bunch of well, yes, obviously, portland based cellists. Anyway, this is all way way way awesome. Mostly because cello’s make sweet, sweet music, but also because they have a pension for covering interesting songs and collaborating with a barrage of talented musicians.  The record, to be released this summer, will include tracks by Thao Nguyen and Justin Power.

If you are not swayed weak in the knee’s with excitement based on this clip of the Portland Cello Project backing up Mirah doing a cover of the Kate Bush song “Hounds of Love”… (breath)… then theres really no hope for you is there?
