Description

Tim Kasher, with his bands Cursive and The Good Life or as a solo artist, has continuously pushed musical boundaries over his career, which has produced 17 LPs and EPs over 20 years. His fearless attitude is easily evident: he's known for switching up sounds between his bands or his solo work (even switching up sounds on each project's albums), crafting intricate concept albums (two of which Cursive's 2003 LP The Ugly Organ and 2012 LP I Am Gemini featured play-like stage directions), and transforming songs originally conceived as a soundtrack for his self-penned screenplay into a standalone album (The Good Life's 2007 release Help Wanted Nights). Kasher's third solo album 'No Resolution' is no exception, delivering what is arguably his most ambitious and intrepid work to date. 'No Resolution' is the natural continuation of Tim Kasher's constantly evolving body of work. It is his most cinematic creation, a moving and cathartic collection of soundscapes that feels more like a suite of movements than a standard pop album, complete with instrumental breaks conjoining the nine songs. Fittingly, the 15 pieces will be featured in Kasher's directorial debut film of the same name, which he also wrote. Across the album's strong story the characters an engaged couple on the brink of a break up grapple with the specific and the broad, including the restlessness of adulthood and smothering external pressures; relationships in various states of transition and the walls built within them; distrust, indecision, and despair; and the existential anxiety that drives a deep need to leave a mark on the world. Filled with lush arrangements, No Resolution is some of the most beautiful and finely orchestral music from Kasher, yet it is also his most subdued and understated work. The string arrangements that dominate the album don't simply hang in the background or accent the pretty melodies, they move the songs forward and force out the melodies as guitars do in traditional hard rock music. There is also a warm sophistication to No Resolution, with its fluid vibraphone tones, and also exhibits Kasher's deft pop hand, with sudden horn blasts and dynamic shifts.
