Ted said at the Portland Cursive show that a new Good Life album was written. No Cursive material for a bit but my guess is the recent one off dates were them playing life together for fun. No idea on a release but I assume sometime in Spring or Summer of this year.
New album is already being recorded and should be released early 2015! They played 2 new songs at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass and that is where Tim announced the new album. It was amazing and I will post some photos soon.
Spoke with Ted from Cursive last night and he said new Good Life may be on the way. Not sure but they're still together, just doing other life things. Stephanie had a baby I think. Tim is living in Chicago with his lady, those types of things.
@donotlabel I would suggest Wolf Parade and Handsome Furs, other bands with Spencer Krug (since you said you like Sunset Rubdown) and check out Owen. It's a solo project of a dude named Mike Kinsella and it's mostly acoustic music, but the lyrics are absolutely beautiful and touching.
This is simply brilliant. Kasher is a genius, there is nothing alike. I am into bands such as The Good Life, Sunset Rubdown, Frightened Rabbit, We Were Promised Jetpacks and The Airborne Toxic Event. Does anyone have any recommendations? Would be much appreciated
Yesterday I listened to O'Rourke's 1:20AM (and all of Black out) for the first time in 4 / 5 years. WOW, is that song (and album) just utterly astonishing. From start to finish, Black Out rocks my soul. But O'Rourke's really just blows me away. fantastic. Tim is the man.
I reviewed Tim Kasher's solo show in Tempe, AZ last Sunday and took some awesome pictures. I feel like a kid on Christmas morning! http://www.examiner.com/indie-music-in-phoenix/tim-kasher-at-the-sail-inn-11-14-10-picture?slide=25980786#mainpicture?slide=25980786#main
Yes. Yes. Yes. This is one of those moments when The Good Life is just crashing down on me (the band, not the actual "good life", god forbid). The genius of Tim is not something I can avoid adoring (and why should I?).
