Cursive premieres another new track: "Wowowow"

Vinyl pressings of "I Am Gemini" were revealed yesterday by Saddle Creek on its Facebook page.
Over at Stereogum, Cursive premiered another new track from its forthcoming album, "I Am Gemini."

You can also download the song, "Wowowow," below by giving Saddle Creek Records your e-mail address. (Did you know that a lot of companies put an actual dollar amount on each e-mail address they have?! As in, "Each e-mail we get is worth $10." You learn all kinds of stuff talking to marketing people.)

The track lurches along like a song from a trippy musical. The best part, of course, is Tim Kasher screaming "Wow, wow, wow!" juxtaposed with the serene vocals of two female singers singing "Without a me/there is no you."

I received my promo copy of "I Am Gemini" yesterday. It's another concept album from Cursive, but I was intrigued and thought it was very cool that the album came with a play book.

I assume it's a copy of the lyrics sheet that will come with the album, but it's laid out like a play with characters, acts, scenes, scene descriptions, character motivation, etc.

It's pretty damn cool.

The section that goes along with "Wowowow" is mostly from the perspective of Pollock, one of the twins at the center of "I Am Gemini's" story.

Saddle Creek is doing pre-orders now, which will ship out on Feb. 7. I'd do the "I Want It All" bundle, which has some awesome swag. The colored vinyl (pictured above) is cool, as is the 10" picture disc. And it's only 50 bucks, which is a steal for all of that stuff.
