Everything Absent or Distorted (a love story) makes Top 20 adds on CMJ

Everything Absent or Distorted (a love story), an act profiled in these pages back in December and who just performed at Artopia, our gigundous annual arts celebration, over the weekend, earned the distinction this week of having its latest platter, the Great Collapse, listed as the tenth most added disc in the country on college radio, according to CMJ. While the number of adds doesn't necessarily affect the group's chart position in the coming weeks, it does put the outfit in good company among its peers; in the not too distant past, bands like Dressy Bessy, the Photo Atlas, Hot IQs, Rabbit Is a Sphere and Cat-A-Tac each had releases listed among the Top 20 adds. The exposure is certainly welcome as the members of Everything Absent prepare to embark on their first cross-country tour for a half-dozen dates. Download a free track from the new album in our MP3 Freeloader section, and see the full dates after the jump.
