Learn to Sing Like a Star by Kristin Hersh astonishes me. Wow! This woman is extraordinarily talented -- writing the songs, playing most of the instruments, and even producing! This CD is an especially fine showcase for her many talents, which includes her poetic lyrics...
"...This place makes me feel like I'm dead haunting
It comes when you steal a Persephone pit
Swallowed with the oxygen that bruised our bones
Swallowed with the pathetic cry, 'Take me home.'"
The Pando link (below) will allow you to download the first song on her new album, IN SHOCK. If that song is not the first single release from the CD... Well, it should be.
And if you like that song, you could purchase the entire CD here.
From seemingly nowhere, Kristin becomes my new, all-consuming musical interest. Now I must immediately acquire her entire oeuvre of work, Throwing Muses included. Gifts accepted, of course! (Check my Amazon Wish List above... :-)
Thank you for sampling her song, and perhaps purchasing her CD.
