Tim Kasher of Cursive, The Good Life Shares “No Secret” Video, Tour Kicks Off Next Week, ‘No Resolution’ Out Now

 

Tim Kasher today premiered his new video for “No Secret,” off his recently released solo album No Resolution, today via Brooklyn Vegan and the clip can now also be seen here: https://youtu.be/3_XTj3awQ9I. He and his band – with instrumentation including cello, violin, vibraphone, keys, bass, drums, and trumpet – will head out on the road next week, embarking on the first leg of a U.S. tour that includes a May 3rd show at The Echo in Los Angeles, CA and a June 3rd show at the Knitting Factory in New York. Known for his engaging live show, Kasher will be performing songs from across his catalog, including his previous solo albums The Game of Monogamy and Adult Film, as well as from his other bands, The Good Life and Cursive. A current itinerary is below.

Kasher released his new solo album No Resolution on March 3rd, 2017 via 15 Passenger, the new label owned and operated by the members of Cursive (Kasher, bassist Matt Maginn, and guitarist/vocalist Ted Stevens). The album has earned press attention from outlets including All Music Guide, The AV Club, Brooklyn Vegan, CLRVYNT, Ghettoblaster, Impose, Noisey, Paste (watch a live session here), PunkNews.org, and Stereogum, among others. The album is now available at all retailers, as well as via the label’s website.

Recognized for pushing musical boundaries throughout his career – whether he’s switching up sounds between his bands and solo LPs, crafting intricate concept albums (two of which – Cursive’s 2003 LP The Ugly Organ and 2012 LP I Am Gemini – featured play-like stage directions), or transforming songs originally conceived as a soundtrack for his self-penned screenplay into a standalone album (The Good Life’s 2007 release Help Wanted Nights) – No Resolutionis the natural continuation of Kasher’s constantly evolving body of work. It is his most cinematic creation, a moving and cathartic collection of soundscapes that feels more like a suite of movements than a standard pop album, complete with instrumental breaks conjoining the nine songs. Fittingly, the 15 pieces will be featured in Kasher’s directorial debut film of the same name, which he also wrote, to be released later this year. Across the album’s strong story, the characters – an engaged couple on the brink of a break up – grapple with the specific and the broad, including the restlessness of adulthood and smothering external pressures; relationships in various states of transition and the walls built within them; distrust, indecision, and despair; and the existential anxiety that drives a deep need to leave a mark on the world.

No Resolution was written throughout 2013-15 and recorded at The Hobby Shop (with Andrew ‘mudrock’ Murdock) and at Kasher’s home in Los Angeles, CA, the Shape Shoppe in Chicago, IL (with Nick Broste), and at ARC Studios in Omaha, NE (with Ben Brodin). Filled with lush arrangements that include piano, vibraphone, organ, trumpet, synths, and various strings, the album is some of the most beautiful and finely orchestral music from Kasher, yet it is also his most subdued and understated work.

“When it comes to writing about the darker side of relationships, there are few songwriters more adept than Cursive and The Good Life frontman Tim Kasher, and his third solo album No Resolution is no exception.” – Noisey

“I was floored by how someone I expected one thing from had so beautifully executed something completely different. This is what angst sounds like when it ages gracefully, and this album is definitely worth a listen. ” – PunkNews.org
