Album Review

On the Good Life's 2004 Lovers Need Lawyers EP the band pares down its sound and comes across as a tough post-punk band rather than dramatic '80s synth pop revivalists. The electronic textures and careful arrangements are mostly gone, singer and bandleaderTim Kasher no longer sounds like he is channeling Robert Smith of the Cure, and the general level of despair and theater is dialed down considerably. Listeners who loved the broken, baroque drama of the first two albums may feel let down, but they shouldn't really because the songs are just as good and the arrangements are still a cut above the usual indie rock band. Kasher seems to have replaced his melancholy with a good old dose of anger that bleeds through in "Entertainer," a bitter, self-lacerating sideswipe at being a musician, the bitter divorce song "Lovers Need Lawyers," and the bitter farewell song "Leaving Omaha." Elsewhere he opens up the sound in a way that the intimate nature of the band's sound would have precluded. On the sweeping epic "For the Love of the Song," the angular, conversational "Friction!," and the bubbly "Always a Bridesmaid," apart from Kasher's vocal it sounds like a different band entirely. In a good way. Lovers Need Lawyers is a promising step forward that puts the band on the same trail to greatness as Spoon and the Anniversary. Hopefully they make it.

Biography

Formed: 2000 in Omaha, Nebraska

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Tim Kasher spent the end of the 1990s making powerful and somewhat underrated music as the lead singer and guitarist for the Omaha-based post-rock quartet Cursive, but the band never really allowed him to explore any of his softer ideas and more personal sentiments. For years, the always inventive songwriter had been setting his mellower ideas aside, occasionally playing them at local coffeehouse shows or in the company of friends, but never sharing them with a very wide audience. In 2000 all that...
