New Cursive Video – “From The Hips”

Amrit was so into Cursive’s Letterman performance of “From The Hips” that he had to take a shower after watching it. The Michael Grodner-directed video for Mama, I’m Swollen’s single affixes a playful storyline to the resurgent Cursive’s raw energy: We get a male and a female caught up in over-thinking and over-playing their assumed societal roles. Once they realize a spontaneous roll in the hay is the closest thing to being born again and equal to a trip around the sun (at least according to Tim Kasher), they break from bourgeois routine and aim for animal magnetism. That’s when some people do, indeed, get swollen.

Mama, I’m Swollen is out via Saddle Creek. Don’t forget the title track.
