Cursive 'Vitriola' LP
Six years since their last record, Cursive are back with their eighth album - Vitriola via Big Scary Monsters. For the first time since Happy Hollow, the album reunites Tim Kasher, guitarist / singer Ted Stevens and bassist Matt Maginn with founding drummer Clint Schnase, as well as co- producer Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, M. Ward, Jenny Lewis) at ARC Studios in Omaha. They’re joined by Patrick Newbery on keys (who’s been a full-time member for years) and touring mainstay Megan Siebe on cello. Schnase and Maginn are in rare form, picking up right where they left off with a rhythmic lockstep of viscera-vibrating bass and toms, providing a foundation for Kasher and Stevens’ intertwining guitars and Newbery and Siebe’s cinematic flourishes. The album runs the sonic gamut between rich, resonant melodicism, Hitchcockian anxiety, and explosive catharsis - and no Cursive album would be complete without scream-along melodies and lyrics that, upon reflection, make for unlikely anthems.
