Like Bright Eyes chief emoter Conor Oberst, Kasher grew up in Omaha and attended Catholic boys school while honing his musical chops. Later, he formed the Omaha-based post-hardcore outfit Cursive and helped guide the band into the fold of Oberst's Saddle Creek Records. Pretty much every record Kasher has cut since the late '90s — from Cursive to a side project called The Good Life to his 2010 debut solo album, The Game of Monogamy, to his just-released follow-up solo EP — has been a Saddle Creek issue. They also all have that distinctive "Creeker" sound. The music is delicate but intense, tuneful but damaged, and elegantly phased. In a word, Oberst-esque.
Supporting his new album —- described as more lush and chamber-pop-ish than his band work — Kasher will swing through town on a tour of cozy (read: low-capacity) U.S. venues. There's no better way to see a Creeker.
