The prolific musician of Throwing Muses, Kristin Hersh has been heralded as the queen of alternative release.

“One of indie rock’s most fascinating figures” (The Guardian) Hersh has released over 20 records throughout her career, with Throwing Muses and 50FOOTWAVE to date. The author of an acclaimed memoir — based on her teenage diary — about a particularly eventful year, titled “Rat Girl” (“Paradoxical Undressing” in the UK). It saw Rolling Stone name it one of their “25 Greatest Rock Memoirs Of All Time”. A publishing first, she later released her ‘Crooked’ (2010) as a ground-breaking book that included the album, artwork, lyrics and an exclusive essay, something that was further explored with Throwing Muses album ‘Purgatory/Paradise’(2013). Her latest book “Don’t Suck, Don’t Die: Giving Up Vic Chesnutt” chronicles the pairs deep friendship and their time touring together.

In 2018 Hersh announced a new partnership with Fire Records that made possible the release of her tenth studio album, ‘Possible Dust Clouds’. “I’m thrilled to find some like-minded teammates in the shifting paradigm of the recording industry. Together, we can do a lot more damage than we could ever pull off alone, and damage is what’s called for when an old guard is falling. This is gonna be a swell party.” Kristin Hersh

‘Possible Dust Clouds’ is a highly personalised 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.
