Tim Kasher, Laura Stevenson, You Are Plural

PETE COTTELL

830 E Burnside St.
 
[POST-EMO] For a scene as replete with navel-gazing and introspection as the early aughts’ emo boom, choosing a poet laureate among the plaid-shirted pariahs of the Midwest is a tough call. Despite his efforts to sabotage my favorite Cursive songs every time he takes his day job on the road, Tim Kasher’s erratic brand of self-deprecating meta-fiction may take the crown purely by default. Promise Ring and Braid had important things to say about Cherry Coke and Romeos in Joliet, but writing songs about writing songs is an industry in which Kasher maintains a monopoly—at least until Dave Eggers starts rapping over creaking organs and cryptic guitar shrapnel.
