I'm digging the latest Cursive album, one of Saddle Creek's more interesting artists, largely because of the their sonic versatility--the albums really don't all sound alike--and the fact that they've managed to stay interesting and listenable for seven albums now. This new set recounts the story of twin brothers Cassius and Pollock, twin brothers at odds with the world for supplying them names close but not close enough to be the Castor and Pollux of Greek and Roman mythology, as well as completely understandable vitriol directed at their parents, who apparently had no compunctions about naming one of the boys after a fish! Hey, when my wife was pregnant, I thought about naming our first kid Ba'al, but then I grew up! Buy this for kicks!
