The Casket Lottery

Blessed/Cursed


Release Date: 2001
Format: OUT OF PRINT

Price: $5.00

Limited edition EP, 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 Lottery's 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 Lottery's 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.

Track Listing:
1. Blessed/Cursed
2. Six Different Ways
3. Best Man
