Cursive recently stopped by Daytrotter Radio Studios to record a short live session, which includes two new songs (“Let Me Up” and “Donkeys”) and “Sierra” from The Ugly Organ (one of my favorite albums of 2003).

In the age of free music (which I’m lovin’), you can download all three songs for free right HERE.
Cursive are about start recording their follow-up to Happy Hollow. Saddle Creek’s answer to Dr. Dre, Mike Mogis, will be handling the early production duties. Apparently the band has 15 songs ready to go.
In order to get the new songs a little bit tighter, Cursive have booked three live performances in May and June (see below).
May 19, Omaha, NE, Waiting Room
June 3, New York, NY, Mercury Lounge (SOLD OUT)
June 27, Chicago, IL, Subterranean
