Throwing Muses’ new album ‘Sun Racket’ is out today, now accompanied by a Visual Album to amplify the experience. The album is an outpouring of modal guitars, reverbed shapes, echoey drums and driving bass set behind Kristin Hersh’s well-thumbed notebook of storylines.

The album is accompanied by a full visual film, put together by experimental filmmaker C.K. Sumner ( who mixed photography with 4k digital to craft haunting visual accompaniments to the songs.

Creating individual videos for every track on the album, Sumner encourages the viewer to “lose track of which is motion/video and which is still film photography”, the photographs used in the films were developed using a coffee based solution to distort and change the way in which the images settled.
