New Kristin Hersh – “In Shock”

We’re always keeping tabs on Kristin and Tanya Donnelly, ’cause whether alone or together (last on 2003’s Throwing Muses), they usually deliver something worth listening to. Here Kristin offers the first cut from her forthcoming solo effort Learn To Sing Like A Star, with strings, key shifts, and Hersh’s vox riding the piano-and-tom, 6/8 pulse.

Kristin Hersh – “In Shock” (MP3)

Can you believe it’s been 17 years since “Dizzy” hit college radio? Four sons, two bands (Throwing Muses and the hardcore-influenced 50 Ft. Wave), still sounding fresh. And she’s down with the free music thing, too! Grab more solo Kristin, Throwing Muses, and 50 Ft. Wave MP3s here.

Learn to Sing Like A Star is out 1/23/07 on Yep Roc Records.
