Kristin Hersh was
a member of The Throwing Muses. She now has been working on solo albums.
These albums have a very wild dreamy feel about them. Her lyrics are
also very poetic and portray a unique experience of the world. She has
suffered many years from manic depression and has used this to fuel
Hips and Makers: This was Kristin's first
solo album. She broke new ground with this album. She sings mostly solo,
accompanied by her guitar. It is very emotional and moving.
Strings: This is an e.p. with songs from
Hips and Makers and additional songs. It is REALLY beautiful. She sings
accompanied by strings, violins etc...
Strange Angels: This is a more recent
release which has a really magical madness about it, she crashes and
soars and carries you with her.
Sky Motel: This is her latest release.
It is even better than her others and she has continued to voyage into
new territories musically. She currently has been touring to promote
Bush - The Line, The Cross & The Curve (1994)
This is Kate Bush's rendition of the tale of the
red shoes. It is very magical and Kate Bush's music is great as always.
