« Coachella 2009 rumored & confirmed artists (Fleet Foxes, Hold Steady, No Age, Girl Talk, the Bug...) | George Bush subject of documentary of Crawford doc, free NYC show tonight w/ Matteah Baim (and Soft Circle) »
In the laundry list of genre labels thrown at Cursive, "folk" and "metal" are two that don't crop up very often.Cursive now officialy have four NYC shows coming up.
But for the second time in the band's career, those are the unusual sounds Tim Kasher and co. are trying to create while writing the band's sixth full-length record.
"We joked a lot on Happy Hollow about how we were trying to do a new brand of folk metal, but it didn't turn out," Kasher said. "It was brought up at practice the other day that maybe this is getting closer to folk metal. Like, I say that, and it's not going to sound anything like folk metal." [the Maneater]
