The gods must be laughing down at me

Ha, ha, ha.

I spent the best years of my life
Waiting on the best years of my life,
So what's there to write about?

I've never heard of them before, so good for you if you're cooler than I. The band Cursive has been around since 1995. They even scored a perfect 5 out of 5 rating from AltPress for one of their albums, back in 2003. Mama, I'm Swollen, which is their seventh full-length album, dropped in March of this year, followed soon after by their first television appearance - on the David Letterman Show. Go Dave!

I am all over this music. I especially love the lyrics and music from Track 2, "From The Hips." Check out the video:

I wanna scream it from my foamin' mouth

I lovetty love it. How about if I take a break from breaking it down and just tell you this is exactly what it would sound like if you decided to pack up and take a weekend trip inside my cranium. That's right, that's what I said. Welcome to crazyville. Enjoy your stay.

That's me. That's what was in this brain when I emerged onto this planet, and that's what has rattled around inside every day since. That whole song.

Check out their tour schedule and hop on over to see them live. It's so ironic that they are going to be at a teeny little venue near me, because I haven't been to that venue in a few years. Yet, I'm gonna go see Paper Route there soon and then be back to check out Cursive. Stay tuned to our podcast and we'll tell you all about the Paper Route show.

Stay classy and buy some decent indie tunes.
