Cursive's 2000 album, Domestica, which tells the story of a dissolving marriage across nine painful, bombastic, and supremely memorable songs, helped establish front man Tim Kasher—whose own divorce inspired it—as one of indie rock's greatest bum-out artists. The Good Life is his side project, debuted at about the same time, and with it he takes a more subtle and intimate approach to dissecting relationships in song. The band's latest, 2007's Help Wanted Nights (Saddle Creek), is another concept album, this one set in a small-town bar—a milieu with a lot of potential for pathos. Kasher does a fantastic job extracting every drop, and his heartbreakingly pretty music would actually sound really good in a run-down small-town bar. —Miles Raymer
