What distinguishes Cursive from its many peers isn't the band's danceable rhythms or even its noisy thrust, but Tim Kasher's slyly self-reflective lyrics. The band's Mama, I'm Swollen might be Cursive's most body-rocking album yet, with its bounty of hard-edged guitar riffs, vinegary horn licks and thorny, Fugazi-like melodies.
