Amoeba Review

04/10/2017

Tim Kasher has little left to prove, having fronted emo stalwarts Cursive and The Good Life for two decades and releasing several solo albums on his own. But, perhaps in a bid to reclaim his indie-rock crown, Kasher has written a concept album of sorts that also functions as a soundtrack to an upcoming film he wrote and directed about a failing engagement. Kasher still wields his everyman voice and vitriolic pen like a weapon, creating evocative imagery that illustrates the pressures we feel to couple up, start a family, and become something familiar. “Son become a father, a professor, time to settle down, settle down, settle down,” Kasher intones on “Runts,” voicing an unsaid social-pressure mantra that lurks in the back of our minds. Musically, Kasher dots his indie-rock guitar-based songs with cello, vibraphone, and other orchestral touches, like a more symphonic version of Cursive, while mixing tonalities on songs like “Break Me Open” or giving “No Secret” catchy, fast-twitch melodies and a ticking beat to keep things interesting. Brimming with intensity and detail, No Resolution just might be Kasher's magnum opus.
