Mama, I'm Swollen

06/25/2009 | Salt Lake City Weekly | | Live Show Preview
Cursive walk a wonderfully jagged line between cerebral and primal sensibilities, celebrating base instincts as on "From Our Hips," by analyzing our penchant to get hung up on words and expectations when we should probably just go with the flowó"We're all just trying to play our roles in a play that runs ad nauseam." The Omaha-based indie-rock vets strike the perfect balance of head, heart and id on Mama, I'm Swollen (Saddle Creek), an album that further refines the group's alternately gentle/frenetic horn-fueled, jazzflecked sound. Time, its harsh lessons and subsequent battle wounds have been very good to Tim Kasher. In the Venue, 579 W. 200 South, 7:30 p.m. All-ages. Tickets:
