Throwing Muses – Sun Racket – Limited Edition, Violet, Colored Vinyl, Die-Cut Jacket, Fire Records, 2020
Limited Violet Colored Vinyl LP pressing. Sun Racket is the 2020 album from legendary Boston trio Throwing Muses, consisting of Kristin Hersh, David Narcizo and Bernard Georges. The follow up to 2013’s Purgatory/Paradise is an outpouring of modal guitars, reverbed shapes, echoey drums and driving bass set behind Kristen Hersh’s well-thumbed notebook of storylines. A ten-song opus of suitably wrought tales set against a wall of sound that’s at once calm and ethereal before building into glorious cacophonous crescendos.
