The Game of Monogamy
The Game of Monogamy takes the listener through every emotion associated with a love/hate relationship, all while sitting perfectly between the chaos of Cursive and the clean and simple sounds of The Good Life. Kasher also breaks out of the norm by pulling in lush orchestrations throughout the album that give a stronger sense of the scene that is being described. As usual, the way Kasher goes about his songwriting is almost akin to that of a screenplay: by constructing a story or adventure for the listener to follow with dialogue and characters you feel you know by the time the story ends.
As any fan of Cursive or The Good Life knows, songs about love and heartache are nothing new to Kasher's two-decade career, but the depth of description on this debut solo effort is. The Game of Monogamy allows us to look a little deeper inside this lovesick madman's mind, and while it's too soon to tell where a solo Kasher will land on my All-Time Favorites list, it's clear that the artist isn't afraid to explore new territory with his songwriting.
