The Good Life – “The Troubadour’s Green Room” (First Listen)

Last month we learned that Cursive frontman Tim Kasher would be reactivating his solo side project-turned-band, the Good Life, with their fifth full-length album Everybody’s Coming Down — their first release in eight years. We already got a peek via the guitar-heavy single “Everybody“, and now another: “The Troubadour’s Green Room,” which is more in line with their indie-folk style. With a prominent bass and slight echoing guitars, the track is Kasher’s self-reflection on his career and place in music. He remembers the days when he dreamed of seeing his face on the cover of an LP, but his ambitious haze has dissolved over the years. He now knows the Troubadour’s green room looks bigger from the outside. But he’s not stopping — not until the “wishing well runs dry.”
