The Good Life
It'd be easy to assume that the press attention and record-biz hype showered on Omaha's indie-rock scene are what's fueled the artistic hubris of the city's acts--Bright Eyes' short-story-length album titles and upcoming double CD, Tim Kasher's dual leadership of Cursive and the Good Life, the Faint's naming a song "Erection"--if it hadn't been in evidence since the scene's inception. The latest album by the Good Life, in which Kasher gives his lacerating, self-reflexive relationship analyses a softer-edged, more acoustic-based setting, is called Album of the Year. Go, white boy, go white boy, go.
