Drawing Down the Moon

Tim Kasher is a remarkably prolific songwriter and performer; between his two bands—Cursive and The Good Life—he released nine albums between 1997 and 2009. But his 10th release is the one he chose to release under his own name, as a solo artist, and The Game of Monogamy is certainly a singular achievement in Kasher's catalog. Recorded in the dead of winter in Whitefish, Mont., bordering Canada and Glacier National Park, the album is an incredibly intricate and theatrical undertaking. Some songs offer immediate pop pleasures ("Cold Love"), while others are incredibly quiet and sparse ("A Grown Man") or sweeping and symphonic ("A Grown Man"). That makes sense, given that members of the Glacier National Symphony were recruited to lend a hand while Kasher recorded in his small rented house and a local music studio. Watching Kasher recreate The Game of Monogamy in concert should be a treat. The Urban Lounge, 241 S. 500 East, 9 p.m., $12
