The Game of Monogamy
But that darkness is where Kasher, known for his work with bands Cursive and The Good Life, shines on his solo record, "The Game of Monogamy."
"A solo album was something I always planned on doing eventually," Kasher said in a recent telephone interview.
After he toured the country in support of Cursive's excellent 2009 offering "Mama, I'm Swollen," Kasher left his LA digs to record in the chilly climate of Whitefish, Mont., an area where he could go on a wild adventure in a land he hadn't toured much.
"It was very much one of the last frontiers for me," Kasher said.
For "The Game of Monogamy," Kasher added more instrumentation and sweeping arrangements to his songs. The album explores how relationships evolve and get messy in an uptight society.
He plays the Glass House's record store in Pomona tonight.
He's a big fan of the regular Glass House, and when he came through last time, he talked with the promoters about doing a smaller show for his solo tour. The record store was the right venue. Kasher said he would be doing a full set.
6:30 p.m. today, Glass House Records, 248 W. Second St., Pomona, 909-865-3802, $7, all ages
