Mama, I'm Swollen
Author: Steve Hayes
Omaha, NE is one of the decade's most surprising hotbeds. Buoyed by Conor Oberst/Bright Eyes and the Saddle Creek Records label, the Midwestern city has turned out several notable indie rock acts. Omaha-natives Cursive is among the most heralded. The group's sound ranges from moody ballads to bright pop to edgy hardcore-influenced tracks. They visit Indy as they tour behind their latest release, 'Mama, I'm Swollen.'
