KRISTIN HERSH (Electric Trio)

w/ Fred Abong and Rob Ahlers

Sun 31 Mar

Throwing Muses lynchpin Kristin Hersh returns to Folkestone! Her prolific career has seen her heralded as queen of the alternative release and her tenth studio album, Possible Dust Clouds is a highly personalised sociopathic 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’, Possible Dust Clouds is a brooding solo record created with friends to expand Hersh's 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.

Possible Dust Clouds is a glorious return to form for one of alternative rock’s true innovators.

"Throwing Muses became a byword for college-rock feminism in the late 80s, largely because of Hersh’s uncompromising impressionist poetry of emotional anguish, subjugated womanhood and mental illness." The Guardian

“She's still as powerful a presence as she ever was.” Pitchfork
