Cursive

What the hell is Cursive doing on Letterman?

 

They’re a ridiculously talented band – therefore WHAT ARE THEY DOING ON TV? 

The new album seems really good.  I had not heard it before I found this video a little while ago.  But if you want to have your mind blown, check Such Blinding Stars for Starving Eyes. I first discovered Cursive about 6 years ago when I bought that album and put it on repeat while working 100 hour weeks during a death march project.

Oh, and these guys are from Omaha – home of Warren Buffett.  Somehow that makes sense in bizarro world.

BTW, will music reviewers please stop labeling them as “emo”?  What an abused genre label that’s turned out to be.
