Cursive - Vitriola LP15 Passenger Records
Vinyl LP pressing. 2018 release from the alt-rock band. For the first time since Happy Hollow, Vitriola reunites Tim Kasher, guitarist/singer Ted Stevens and bassist Matt Maginn with founding drummer Clint Schnase, as well as co-producer Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, M. Ward, Jenny Lewis). They're joined by Patrick Newbery on keys. The album runs the sonic gamut between rich, resonant melodicism, Hitchcockian anxiety, and explosive catharsis. The album was recorded with co-producer Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, M. Ward, Jenny Lewis) at ARC Studios in Omaha. Described as emo-tinged post-hardcore, Cursive came to prominence with 2000's Domestica and found commercial and critical success with 2003's The Ugly Organ.
