"Dubya" still controlled the White House when Omaha rock outfit the Good Life released their last full-length, Help Wanted Nights—though to be fair it came out in 2007, so it doesn’t feel that long ago. Meanwhile Chicago-based front man Tim Kasher has had plenty on his plate. His emo band Cursive is still ripping it up, his solo album, 2013’s Adult Film, feels fresh enough to be considered newish, and he wrote and directed an indie film that's now on the way—so I wouldn’t blame him for wanting to take five from everything for a little bit. (Full disclosure: Kasher is also engaged to Reader associate editor Gwynedd Stuart . . . yet another line of work.) But now Kasher and his Good Life bandmates are back with the brand-new Everybody’s Coming Down (Saddle Creek), and it feels particularly vital, like the four-piece needed to get these touching, lived-in rock songs on record. On the bucolic “The Troubadour’s Green Room” Kasher intertwines a veteran bar musician's woes and desires with the childlike dreams that led him there. No matter how gloomy the tale about the fictional musician who feels increasingly cornered by his youthful ambitions, the band sounds like there’s nothing they’d rather do than play the song.
