SYNDICATE
Posted by: Dave on September 14, 2007 at 8:46 am

GoodLifeHelpNote: Tim Kasher is best known as the frontman of Cursive, but this is his fourth album with his other band, The Good Life.
Sound: With breezy acoustic reflections and distorted electric freakouts Tim Kasher therapeutically spews out his brutally honest and highly crafty observations. Though the subject matter is predominately bleak and heartbreaking, Help Wanted Nights is actually more hopeful and upbeat than most of Tim’s work. Some lyrics are more sarcastic and fun than usual, while a few songs have a poppy bounce.
Heavy Rotation tracks: “Heartbroke”; “On the Picket Fence”; “You Don’t Feel Like Home To Me”; “Some Tragedy”
Medium Rotation tracks: “So Let Go”; “Keely Aimee”; “A Little Bit More”; “Playing Dumb”
Recommended: Tim Kasher is on a roll. Last year, he put out his best Cursive album to date with Happy Hollow (my #11 album of 2006). This year, he’s put out his best The Good Life album, and it will surely end up in the top 10 of my year-end list.

    Nice post! I’ve loved everything Kasher has put out since Lullabye for the Working Class…a true musical genius. I may have some Saddle Creek mp3s you’d be interested in…hit me up.
