Tim Kasher of Cursive and The Good Life is about to put out his debut solo record, and to help Chicago fans gear up for the release he'll play a set this Tuesday, September 28 at Reckless Records (3126 N. Broadway) kicking off at 7 p.m.

On the album, The Game of Monogamy - out October 5 on Saddle Creek - Kasher takes on a more arranged, classic pop sound than on his previous work. About the new direction, he recently told Spin: “It’s a minor detail, but it’s gotten me pretty excited, creatively speaking, to start over like this. I imagine about 90 percent of these songs would not have made it into a Cursive practice.”

He recorded the 11-track album early this year in Whitefish, Montana following nearly a year of touring in support of Cursive's latest LP, Mama, I'm Swollen. For a taste of what you can expect to hear, you can get a free mp3 of the record's first single, "Cold Love," by clicking below and entering your e-mail address. According to the Reckless website, Kasher might also have copies of The Game of Monogamy on hand at the in-store performance.
