#20 - The Ugly Organ

How the hell did this record happen? From where in Tim Kasher's psyche did this beautifully overwrought, self-examining, epic ball of raw nerves come from? Whatever its origin, it comes out of the gate with blinding polarity both aggressively swinging and curled up on the proverbial floor in a fit of self-doubt. The lyrical matter runs the gamut of promiscuous sex to the guiltiness of writing songs about yourself to battling with a lover always well articulated and full of true-life details. Incredible.
