“One of indie rock’s most fascinating figures” The Guardian
Earlier this year Black Pearl was released, the brand new album from 50 Foot Wave: Kristin Hersh’s ‘other’ band – active since 2003, with fellow Throwing Muses’ member Bernard Georges on bass and drummer Rob Ahlers. A sonic trip from the heavy, echoey riff of ‘Staring Into The Sun’ with all of its grunge melancholy and dronecore menace to the perfectly baroque ‘Hog Child’ with its spidery guitar that dissolves into motorik bass and drums.
So why wait, pick up a copy of Throwing Muses critically acclaimed 2020 opus Sun Racket, or grab the last copies of the super rare 50 Foot Wave releases that were finally repressed on vinyl for this year’s Record Store Day, or return to Hersh’s brooding tenth solo effort with 2018’s, Fire Records debut, Possible Dust Clouds.
“Fire Records is the recording industry teammate I’ve searched for since I started my first band. They are by far our best hope for the future of real music” Kristin Hersh
