Just placed online, a detailed interview with Cursive’s Tim Kasher and Ted Stevens (read it here). They talk about the band’s new CD, Happy Hollow, the role of faith in their lives, the concept of concept albums (and why theirs isn’t one), the musical convergence with The Good Life, the making of the record, those crazy horns, and breaking up and getting back together again. It’s looong. It’s also the cover story of this week’s issue of The Reader, which should be stacked around town later today. I don’t have much else to say, other than go read it. Again, you won’t be able to pick up the new CD until Aug. 22 (I doubt there will even be copies available at Saturday’s Sokol Auditorium show).
And if you haven’t had enough Cursive, tomorrow’s column (which will actually be online late tonight) compiles more comments from Ted’s interview that didn’t make it into the cover story. Ted talks about criticism of the new record (and criticism in general) as well as the future of Mayday (sort of).
