Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…
10 July 2020
KRISTIN HERSH is one of those rare artists who don’t lose their high-quality songwriting strength and eager ambition to create new arresting music, even after a long succesful career. With THROWING MUSES (Hersh, David Narcizo, and Bernard Georges) she’ll share 10th LP, entitled SUN RACKET with the world on 4th September.
“All it asked of us was to commingle two completely disparate sonic vocabularies: one heavy noise, the other delicate music box. Turns out we didn’t have to do much. Sun Racket knew what it was doing and pushed us aside, which is always best. After thirty years of playing together, we trust each other implicitly but we trust the music more” says Hersh about the new record.
And here is number three. BO DIDDLEY BRIDGE is a twofold song starting with a heavy groove and turning blue halfway with an almost whispering Hersch. Storm before the calm. Pretty special!
“My little boy, Bo, used to fish off Bo Diddley Bridge down the street before it collapsed, around the time our life collapsed. But we lived; we swam in a life sunshine somehow. And both bridges – the Bo Diddley one and the life one – were rebuilt around us.”
