Mama, I'm Swollen

03/31/2009 | | | Live Show Preview
With their new Mama, I'm Swollen album just tearing things up like nobody's business - read the official BLURT review HERE ( - Cursive has announced a raft of tour dates starting late April and running through mid May. Full itinerary, below.

You know you wanna hear the record before you see the show. As we advised you, it's the Omaha band's "latest batch of highly bitter and literate indie rock songs. Throughout this new album frontman Tim Kasher ruminates on themes that have obsessed him for years -- fear of settling, the struggle for artistic release and accomplishment, society's insistence that a man grow up."

Nobody around here wants to grow up, we can guarantee you that. Meanwhile, Cursive has also just unveiled their new video for the tracks "From the Hips," and we've got it on heavy rotation over in the BLURT video kiosk. You can surf around until you find said kiosk, or simply click through HERE and glom onto the tune. Directed by Michael Grodner, it'll have you feeling kinda, um, hungry before it's done...
