CD Review: Tim Kasher Plays "The Game Of Monogamy"
The album's beginning orchestral overture gets pushed out by the alternative rock of "A Grown Man." The album's songs and story just flow together like one complete piece of music. The tempos change within songs to stress the lyrics. The acoustic "Strays" puts the focus on Tim' voice instead of all that's happening with the music. Tim's songwriting can be compared to that of Ray Davies of The Kinks during his 1970's rock opera days of "Preservation" and "Soap Opera." The use of horns and strings gives Tim's songs another dimension like in "Bad, Bad Dreams" and "The Prodigal Husband."
Tim Kasher's new album will be released on Saddle Creek Records. Visit saddle-creek.com to purchase the new album, find tour dates and more.
