Stream new Cursive

Posted May 18th, 2008 by eric

Tim Kasher’s evolving mainstay, Cursive, has been playing a smattering of live shows recently to work out the kinks on some new material in preparation for entering the studio to record the follow-up to 2006’s under-appreciated Happy Hollow. The band just finished a live session at Daytrotter, playing a slow, loose, and tortured version of “Sierra” off its masterpiece The Ugly Organ as well as two new unreleased songs, “Let Me Up” and “Donkeys.” The new stuff follows “Sierra’s” off-kilter reworking with spacious guitar interplay, organ, and an almost haphazard demeanor, not to mention Kasher’s gruff (even more so than usual) wail. Cursive also dropped by WOXY, playing a similar set with an additional new song, “We’re Going to Hell.” The band will also play a set for Sound Opinions this Monday, May 19th at 3:00 p.m.

    Sierra is one of my faves from the Ugly Organ, which took me forever to get in to, but I eventually came to love it. I never put much effort into happy hollow. I’ll have to revisit that one.
