Their Sound: Vocals that flip from desperate to vicious and back again float over shifting time signatures, churning guitars, deep bass lines, and the occasional cello strain and horn trill.
Their Albums: are predominantly conceptual, stringing songs together with lyrical themes and appropriately linked instrumentation
Their Subject Matter: failed marriages, pointless relationships, art, music, religion, twins separated at birth—you know, pretty standard rock stuff
Their Breakout: 2003’s The Ugly Organ, which earned 4 stars from Rolling Stone, 5 stars from Alternative Press, and critical praise for its meta-musical themes
Omaha, Nebraska: the birthplace of Cursive (and frontman Tim Kasher), Bright Eyes (and its frontman, Conor Oberst), The Faint, and, not coincidentally, Saddle Creek Records
Where Else You Can Hear Tim: in his solo project, The Good Life, and in albums released under his own name.
What to Expect: plenty of energy and reasons to headbang, including “The Recluse,” “The Martyr,” and “Dorothy at Forty,” plus tracks from Cursive’s latest studio album, 2012’s I Am Gemini
