Blessed/Cursed is a tantalizing appetizer in the wait for the next CASKET LOTTERY full-length. Limited to 1,500 copies, Blessed/Cursed features divergent covers of THE CURE and KILL CREEK, ("Six Different Ways" and "Best Man," respectively) as well as one brand new offering, "Blessed/Cursed." "Blessed/Cursed" combines the best aspects of THE CASKET LOTTERYs two full-lengths with their evolving, tangential structures, giving perhaps a glimpse of their next record. However, the covers stand on their own, retaining the familiarity of their originators yet gaining THE CASKET LOTTERYs identity. "Best Man" is a reluctant rock song, served by its enthusiasm, chorus and acoustic outro, while "Six Different Ways" is a brooding, mid-paced affair, complete with sampled instrumentation and plaintive singing. Blessed/Cursed is exactly what its title suggests: blessed to have these three songs, cursed to wait for more.
The Casket Lottery has emerged as one of indie rocks most powerful, yet underrated bands. -- Invisible YouthSee all Editorial Reviews
