Tim Kasher The Game Of Monogomy
Release Date: October 5, 2010
Label: Saddle Creek
Tim Kasher has penned dozens of noteworthy songs for his two long-running bands, Cursive and The Good Life, and The Game of Monogamy marks his first full-length under his own name.
The theatrical arrangements and lush instrumentation of the album's moody orchestral pop evoke a 1950s, pre-sexual revolution atmosphere, and set the stage for a dilemma that remains thoroughly modern. The protagonist's arc in The Game of Monogamy spans the wide range of human emotions tangled up around relationships in a starched shirt society.
Kasher's vision is as keen as ever, unapologetically honest, unflinching, and self-reflective.
