After "Domestica" chronicled the tempestuous end of singer Tim Kasher's marriage, is Cursive ready to settle down? Well, they are set to burst and bloom into the next phase of their creative cycle, no less intense. On "Sink to the Beat," with it's tottering new wave-influenced dancey beat, he sings "some melodies are like disease, they can inflame your misery," and it's an apt description of his own music. Only he's talented enough to make you like it at the same time.
