Do you guys realize how long Cursive have been around? Bill Clinton was president when they released their first album. They've been repping Saddle Creek since before Bright Eyes and the Faint and Rilo Kiley were things that people knew or cared about. Odds are they've been making spiky, depressive barroom indie since way before you've been listening to spiky, depressive barroom indie.

And Mama, I'm Swollen, their new, kinda nastily-named album, will be Cursive album number seven. That's a lot of albums Saddle Creek will release it on March 10.

That's the murkily pretty Mama, I'm Swollen cover above, and the tracklist is below. Around the time the album drops, the band will play a few shows.
