It was a three-year nap, but this August, the boys' club returns (minus token estrogen, cellist Greta Cohn) with Happy Hollow, and it sounds pissed. Double-standards and the facade of the American dream fuel the enigmatic arrangements of guitars, horns, piano, and other assorted instruments as Kasher's aching vocals provide a punchy charge for Cursive's strongest sound to date. Songs such as the horn-laden anthem "Rise Up! Rise Up!" and the metallic anxiety of "Retreat!" find Happy Hollow highlighting a more refreshed and concentrated Cursive.
