Monday, Nov 15, 2010

Tim Kasher, who has spent the last two decades with Cursive and the Good Life, released his first solo album The Game of Monogamy on October 5th of this year. The album highlights the thematic, lyrical songwriting that has kept Kasher on the radar of music critics since 1997. The Game of Monogamy is equal parts catchy pop, grand orchestral arrangements, and stark instrumentation. The theme that ties these songs together is one of rocky relationships and the dark sides of marriage.

Kasher’s Daytrotter sessions are available at This session includes the The Game of Monogamy tracks “Bad, Bad Dreams”, “The Prodigal Husband”, “No Fireworks”, and a cover of David Bowie’s “Soul Love”.

Kasher is in the middle of a national tour supporting the album that will last until December 17, 2010.
