C&L's Late Nite Music Club - The 50 State Strategy With Cursive (NE)

Mama I'm Swollen, Cursive's new album, wins my award for worst album title of the year, but "From The Hips" is a nice tune. While the humdrum over the Omaha scene centered mostly around Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes), Cursive and the other acts on Saddle Creek Records has died down a bit since 2003, Tim Kasher and co. continue to make quality introspective indie dirge. Also worth checking out: "The Night I Lost The Will To Fight" from 2000's Domestica.

Every Monday night (Tuesday this week), C&L's Late Nite Music Club showcases an act from every state, alphabetically by state, as part of LNMC's 50 State Strategy.
