VIDEO: Cursive “I Couldn’t Love You”

Posted June 11th, 2009 by Eric Greenwood · No Comments

Second single and video from Cursive‘s excellent, still-in-heavy-rotation Mama, I’m Swollen stars an all-grown-up, ahem, Tania Raymonde, who plays Benjamen Linus’ (dead?) daughter Alex on Lost. Lead singer Tim Kasher explained the video thusly to Spinner: “The idea for the video is a gross exaggeration of the ‘trophy wife’ concept — grooms hunting down brides, hanging wedding pictures over the mantel next to a deer head.” Works for me. You do have to sit through an ad to view the video, so be forewarned.
