That Cursive are still producing consistently decent records this far into their career is a commendable achievement in itself, and seventh album ‘I Am Gemini’ is as ambitious as the previous six. This time around, their jangly indie-rock explores the journey of two twin brothers separated at birth through a procession of the schizophrenic (‘Drunken Birds’) and the more accessible (‘Warmer Warmer’) with largely satisfying results. While Cursive are as distinctively niche as ever, they still pen awkward music for awkward people better than the plethora of other bands imitating their sound.
Things have happened this week. Important things, like Bring Me The Horizon releasing a new song and the supports being announced for the Rock Sound Christmas Ball. Some quite funny, incredibly unimportant stuff happened too. Like this lot.
