“Naked Friends” out now!
Borne of the patchouli-soaked rainforest of Oregon’s Willamette Valley, Cabinessence peppers its space-hippie country with sultry, Bolan-esque glam rock and bizarro flashes of ass-shaking motor-city funk. The ghosts of Brian Wilson and Phil Spector haunt these walls—or would, if either of them were dead.
Naked Friends is the band’s second long-player, and their first for Spark & Shine. Their debut Comes Back to You landed them as one of Magnet Magazine’s Bands to Watch.
Cabinessence is led by Nathan Maricle and Jacob Arnold, formerly of NW buzz band Marigold. Joining them are multi-instrumentalist David Pulliam (sometimes seen with fellow Portlanders Celilo), bassist Tim Coulter, and drummer Mike Ronne (ex-Touchforce, Hot for Chocolate).
