Mama, I'm Swollen

04/01/2009 | | | Album Review
The first video from Tim Kasher and co.'s most recent effort, Mama, I'm Swollen, finds Cursive in familiar visual territory, full of lip syncers, subdued color palettes and the potentially humdrum ennui of daily life as a sucker. The song itself is far catchier than we'd imagine would come from their camp, but it's a pleasant change-up. The disc is out now and the band are heading out next month on a tour with Man Man.
