Tim Kasher (frontman for Cursive, The Good Life), is set to release his solo debut, The Game of Monogamy. It's filled with theatrical arrangements and lush instrumentation, stamping a "guaranteed" on Kasher's brand of classic pop.
As the press release oh-so eloquently states, "The protagonist’s arc throughout the album spans the wide range of distinctly human emotions tangled up around relationships in a starched shirt society. Call it the score for our collective sexual plight: expression routinely becomes repression in the name of romance." Sounds right up my literary alley.
Run, don't walk, to download the "Cold Love" single.
The Game of Monogamy comes out October 5, 2010 on Saddle Creek. Kasher's going on tour at the end of September in support of Minus the Bear, and future tour dates will be announced soon.
