“An Answer For Everything” by Tim Kasher

Tim Kasher today debuted his video for “An Answer For Everything,” the first single off his forthcoming third solo album No Resolution. No Resolution will be released on March 3, 2017 via 15 Passenger, the new label owned and operated by the members of Cursive (Kasher, bassist Matt Maginn, and guitarist/vocalist Ted Stevens).

Following a solo show at Union Pool in Brooklyn, NY on March 1st, Kasher will head overseas for a tour of the UK and Europe. He’ll return to the States for a west coast tour that begins on April 25th in Denver, CO.

Known for pushing musical boundaries throughout his career – whether he’s switching up sounds between his bands and solo LPs, crafting intricate concept albums (two of which – Cursive’s 2003 LP The Ugly Organ and 2012 LP I Am Gemini – featured play-like stage directions), or transforming songs originally conceived as a soundtrack for his self-penned screenplay into a standalone album (The Good Life’s 2007 release Help Wanted Nights) – No Resolution is the natural continuation of Kasher’s constantly evolving body of work. It is his most cinematic creation, a moving and cathartic collection of soundscapes that feels more like a suite of movements than a standard pop album, complete with instrumental breaks conjoining the nine songs. Fittingly, the 15 pieces will be featured in Kasher’s directorial debut film of the same name, which he also wrote, to be released later this year. Across the album’s strong story, the characters – an engaged couple on the brink of a break up – grapple with the specific and the broad, including the restlessness of adulthood and smothering external pressures; relationships in various states of transition and the walls built within them; distrust, indecision, and despair; and the existential anxiety that drives a deep need to leave a mark on the world.

No Resolution was written throughout 2013-15 and recorded at The Hobby Shop (with Andrew ‘mudrock’ Murdock) and at Kasher’s home in Los Angeles, CA, the Shape Shoppe in Chicago, IL (with Nick Broste), and at ARC Studios in Omaha, NE (with Ben Brodin). Filled with lush arrangements that include piano, vibraphone, organ, trumpet, synths, and various strings, the album is some of the most beautiful and finely orchestral music from Kasher, yet it is also his most subdued and understated work.
