Counting backwards I count you in

In time I rope you in again
I try and turn you back through him
I built a tower in my bones
I spill the mortar through my home
Don’t let your heartbeat keep you safe
No telling what keeps me awake
One hundred fingerprints I hear
A hundred linger in my ear
Measure fortune killing tim

TURN UP THE VOLUME’s Jiving Jukebox – Here Are… THROWING MUSES

The Jukebox Series: only the greats can fill a Wurlitzer with memorable moments…

THROWING MUSES were formed in 1981 in Newport, Rhode Island by two tremendously singer-songwriters, Kristin Hersh and half-sister Tanya Donelly (who left in 1993 to
join The Breeders for a while, before starting her own shining band Belly). A high-quality songwriting band throughout its long (with a couple of breaks, Hersh‘s solo albums and line-up changes) succesful career. Overall the Muses approach to pop music was always emotionally electrifying, weirdly catchy, artistically challenging and of course Hersh‘ voice was/is one of a wondrous kind and her harmonies with Donelly‘s angelic vox generated several standout sparks. Chosing the usual 15 songs to fill the Wurlitzer wasn’t easy at all.

After multiple changes/additions/deletes forth & back,
here are TURN UP THE VOLUME‘s 15 picks…

.

Songs selected from the following albums: House Tornado (1988) / Hunkpapa (1989) / The Real Ramona (1991) / Red Heaven (1991) / University (1995) / Limbo (1996) / Throwing Muses (2003 / Purgatory-Paradise (2013)
