Cursive "Mama, I'm Swollen" LP


Ever since Cursive burst onto the music scene with their 1997 debut, they've consistently churned out heady albums heralded by critics and fans alike. Wrestling with life's miseries and mysteries, "Mama, I'm Swollen" is an album brimming with the universal, and questioning the human condition, social morality, and the Peter Pan Syndrome of grown men. Musically, Cursive is as smart and sophisticated as ever, the songs' rousing cerebral content complemented by moments alternately hushed and exhilarating; eerily moody and jaunty. The quartet remains one of the most exciting and inventive rock bands today.
