Cursive released The Ugly Organ, their fourth album, in 2003 on Saddle Creek Records to critical and commercial success  . The Ugly Organ was reissued by Cursive and Saddle Creek in 2014, featuring four additional tracks originally released on 8 Teeth to Eat You and four songs from singles and compilations 15 Passenger and Vitriola (2017-present).

Cursive is no stranger to the concept album; their last full-length, Domestica, was a song-cycle dealing with the critical entropy of a dying marriage, and its warm reception seems to have motivated Kasher to stay in the storyteller role. The "plot" of The Ugly Organ, such as it is, revolves around loose themes of fallout remorse and hollow sexual meandering, the latter summed up in the double meaning of the album title

Disc 2 is a compilation disc of tracks written during the same sessions as and originally intended for The Ugly Organ. They 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. Official release is 11/24/2014.

These elements are brought together in near-perfection with their 2003 record The Ugly Organ. Through these 12 tracks, I have heard musical passages unlike any other I have experienced. The band, led by Kasher, weave intricate guitar and bass lines through the deep, mellow voicings of cello, whilst drums snap between fury and beauty. All are serenaded by Kasher's tale of "The Ugly Organist" and his vignettes, dealing with death, sex, love, heartbreak, and everything in between. A palette cleanser of sorts is the opening intro, The Ugly Organist
