... But there's a new Throwing Muses record coming out, which makes this Millenial-Wishing-I-was-Xer very very happy.
Dear Kristin Hersh,
Please please please come to Cleveland! I love your acoustic stuff too and your book you just wrote, and that solo show you did with the cellist was awesome, but I want to see you rock out. Besides I play your music on my show all the time and this will give me a good excuse to play more. I hope I'm as awesome as you when I get old.
That (Fan) Girl
To explain this embarrassingly gushiness on my part, listen below...
one of my top 10 favorite songs of all time. Michael Stipe can be forgiven for Shiny Happy People because of this song alone. The cello, the way their voices go together... it still moves me every time i hear it.
I got into Throwing Muses because Thom Yorke said they were a big influence on him and this CD was at the library I shelved books at as a teen.
And then the most recent project between solo records which always reminds me of if Kurt Cobain had ovaries and decided to make an even more corrosive record than In Utero, have a bunch of kids instead of get addicted to heroin and kill himself. How much do I love absurd amounts of heavy distortion, power chords, and general fury? So, so much.
