Kash Out

| November 18, 2010 | 0 Comments

Something like a decade ago, Tim Kasher was a sturdy tine on the Saddle Creek pitchfork, spearheading Cursive and nurturing volatility. Growing up wasn’t part of the equation.

That was the whole thing about Saddle Creek’s sudden emergence: these were just Omaha kids who managed to knit their own scene without any outside help. Some saw it as Middle America vs. the coasts, but really it was raising a youthful flag for independent rock in the heartland. Strangely, Conor Oberst’s Desaparecidos side-project – the label’s only serious rival to Cursive’s ferocity – broached the subject of domesticity, and today it’s Kasher on the subject but more in Oberst’s Bright Eyes musical vocabulary. The Game Of Monogamy, released in October, continues Kasher’s ugly reckonings with the life ahead of him. It begins shakily, with him talking about how much it sucks to have grown-up choices in front of him instead of dealing directly with them, but before long his mind is awash in his inner protests to marriage, making a living, and aging in general.
