Art Is Hard Single

It's been almost exactly two years since Cursive's last full-length, Domestica (released in January 2000). In the interim the band released last year's Burst and Bloom EP, Which introduced new member cellist Gretta Cohn. The band's first single, "Art is Hard," from The Ugly Organ, the new LP due out in March and for which the band is touring, features Ms. Cohn talents prominently, blending her powerful string-stroking with a synchonized propulsion of more typical indie rock sounds. If the songis any indication, the forthcoming album, and presumably the show at little tonight, January 9, could be some of the band's best stuff yet.
