““No Shade in Shadow” — guitars, drums, her voice — is swathed in distortion and echo effects; one of the intelligible lines is “Waiting for the noise to stop.” It doesn’t. That’s the point.” NY Times
“The prodigious output and commitment to quality is pretty staggering, but then Kristin Hersh is a very, very special musician.” The Quietus
“She’s still as powerful a presence as she ever was.” Pitchfork
Throwing Muses’ lynchpin, Kristin Hersh’s prolific career has seen her heralded queen of the alternative release.
Her tenth studio album, ‘Possible Dust Clouds’ is a highly personalised sociopathic gem delivered as a futuristic rewriting of how music works, a melodious breeze with a tail wind of venomous din.
Enveloping the juxtaposition of the concept of ‘dark sunshine’, a brooding solo record created with friends to expand her off-kilter sonic vision; a squally, squeaky mix of discordant beauty.
Feedback and phasing gyrate from simply strummed normality, imagine Dinosaur Jr and My Bloody Valentine cranking up a Dylan couplet.
‘Possible Dust Clouds’ is a glorious return to form for one of alternative rock’s true innovators.
