Tim Kasher’s publicist Cobracamanda announced today that the Cursive frontman’s sophomore solo album, Adult Film, will be released Oct. 8 on Saddle Creek. Kasher recorded the album at Chicago’s Electrical Audio this past spring.

Sayeth the press release: “Whereas The Game Of Monogamy was an orchestral album filled with theatrical arrangements, Adult Film favors less ornate, equally impactful instrumentation across its 10 affecting tracks….Lyrically, Kasher is at his incisive best, thematically elastic and touching on aging (self-reflection and taking stock), mortality (one’s own and others’), and relationships of all kinds.”

Not exactly new lyrical ground for the ol’ boy, but I’ll take it.

Kasher is joined on Adult Film by Sara Bertuldo (bass, vocals), Patrick Newbery (organ, keys, synths, horns), and Dylan Ryan (drums) – who backed him while touring around The Game Of Monogamy – as well as additional artists including Nate Kinsella (drums; of Make Believe and Birthmark) and Laura Stevenson (vocals; of Laura Stevenson and the Cans), among others. The album was mixed by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Wye Oak, Explosions In The Sky) at Elmwood Recording in Dallas, TX.

Kasher’s having a CD release show Oct. 5 at The Waiting Room.

One of the only local hip-hop artists from the area that has caught my attention, Conchance (Make Believe Recordings) dropped a new video for his track “What’s Goode?” According to the label, the video “pays homage to his old friend, Mark Goode, an Omaha-fled skate comrade who now lives in Los Angeles, who Conchance frequently visits on the West Coast.” The video was directed and shot by Omaha filmmakers Sam Martin (Capgun Coup) and Dan Thompson. Check it:
