Cursive’s ‘Remorse’ is an expansive, keys-heavy soundscape from the Nebraska heavyweights. As I’ve discussed before, these guys formed an important part of Nebraska’s indie rock scene in the nineties into the two-thousands. Since then, Tim Kasher has continued to lead this band on increasingly ambitious, broad projects in a pensive, experimental vein of rock music. This track certainly plays into that. Although it starts out as a post-rock-style soundscape rooted in mellow keys and distortion, the end of the piece storms up before it descending into the recorded destruction of a grand piano. Interestingly, Kasher’s calm, understated vocals provide a nice sense of structure for this otherwise amorphous track. There’s something deeply haunting about this piece in a cinematic way.
