One of the most commonly pulled quotes from the new Kanye West/Jay-Z album comes from West: "I curse in cursive." It's a strange reference, seeing has how texting and social blogging have effectively killed penmanship. Flourishing side-projects haven't killed Cursive for frontman Tim Kasher, though he made a concerted solo effort on last year's The Game Of Monogamy. He's back quickly this summer with a drip-pan EP, Bigamy (More Songs From The Monogamy Sessions (Saddle Creek), whose title makes it sound like marriage-counseling recordings. And that they might be, as Kasher details the varying cuddly, cold, and distraught emotions that accompany him on his one-on-one journey. Cursive fans should know that the separation between these songs and Cursive is simply the explicit subject matter; the musical score swoons and lurches just as it always has.
