Mama, I'm Swollen

Cursive has been busy lately. In addition to recently touring up a storm (which I narrowly missed, sadly), they've just released the third video from Mama, I'm Swollen — which is in something like a 264:1 aspect ratio — and stopped in for another Daytrotter session.

And the Daytrotter session is where the real gold lies. Sure, the video has, from what I can tell, Tim Kasher pulling a Ted Kennedy (Too soon? Not soon enough?). But Kashie and the boys covered some David Bowie and The Cure for the 'Trotter.

This almost makes me forget that their last couple of albums weren't The Ugly Organ. Not that I'm complaining… too much. It's just tough to measure up to that one every time.
