Tim Kasher, lead singer of Cursive, recently hit the road for a solo tour of the UK but not without taking on our Desert Island Discs challenge. Well known for his indie rock style, it's time to find out exactly where all that musical inspiration comes from.

1. Violent Femmes - self titled.

I've listened to this album one billion times already, so it's safe to say I could continue listening to it for the rest of my life. This has to be one of THE most impactful influences on my musical life - hell, it's basically one of the biggest influences on ALL of alternative music and every offshoot thereof.


2. Sharon Van Etten - Are We There.

I love all of Sharon's records, but this one somehow feels like a warm blanket for me; I surprised myself, how much I listened to this record when it came out. Over and over again. I don't even know how to describe the album, nor do I differentiate the songs much, it's just an overall feeling that is like a narcotic for me. So yeah, I'd keep listening to that.
