It takes guts to have a band as nuts as Philly junkband bangers Man Man open for you on tour heck, you'll be lucky to have the stage in one piece once they're done. But Omaha, Neb., indie mainstays Cursive have learned to seethe and explode in subtle, less expected and ultimately more rewarding ways.

"From the Hips," off their new disc Mama, I'm Swollen, marries jazzy introspection and post-hardcore holler in a staggering fashion which earned Cursive high praise from the man himself when they appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman last month.
