“Cursive Falls From The Sky marks the fifth solo record by the prolific Robb Benson. The album is also the 17th release by the Seattle songwriter, who began his career in town in 1997 on PopLlama Records with his band The Nevada Bachelors. The man knows hooks and how to write hits, often combining his ability to make music with various poets he meets who compose the lyrics. While the lyrics for “The Way Through” are his own, he has also worked with writers like Liz McDonald for Cursive’s melancholy track “Let Them Eat Cake” and previously with Michele Price in their band Dear John Letters. Cursive is a 13-track record with dancey, electronic-based tunes like “Gone” mixed with rock tunes like “Road Song”, which features drummer Dominic Cortese. The album ends with the tune “The Shelk,” about a mythological creature of Benson’s creation, a half-elk, half-shark, meant to embody the amalgamation of bandmates Robb has worked with over his long and lustrous career. ”
