Via Saddle Creek:
Cursive – The Ugly Organ (Deluxe Edition) is out now.The album is available, 2xLP 180-gram vinyl, and digitally, with eight additional tracks on the accompanying disc. These tracks – written during the same sessions as and originally intended for The Ugly Organ – were previously found across the band’s 2002 split with Eastern Youth 8 Teeth To Eat You, their ‘Art Is Hard’ and ‘The Recluse’ singles, and the Saddle Creek 50 compilation. The packaging for both the 2xCD and 2xLP includes a booklet with extensive liner notes comprised of rare photos, original artwork drafts, handwritten lyrics, a list of all tour dates from the era, and an introduction written by Kyle Ryan of The AV Club.
