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.
