The Game of Monogamy
Author: Chrissy Wilmes
The Cursive and The Good Life frontman's latest endeavor is a solo one. A cute irony, considering the album is completely centered around relationships and their demises. The Consequence of Sound review says of Monogamy,"Tim Kasher may've left the plains of the Midwest for Montana by way of L.A., but his pencil-sharp focus on the pangs of domesticity remains the consistent, driving force behind his songwriting. Not that a move out west necessitates a topical evolution, or that marriage hasn't been tackled with brutally honest force in Hollywood before, but I'd speculated that Kasher's sojourn might invite a narrative shift in his work, as if he'd said all there is to say about the false hope of romantic love. I was wrong."
