0669. Throwing Muses
First off: Throwing Muses is a seriously good bandname. I can't really explain why just yet, but give me a month or so and perhaps I'll tell you.
Luckily, the band's pretty good too. The lead singer's voice reminds me of Marianne Faithfull in some of the songs and the music's good enough to repeat-listen for a couple of hours too late into the night.
Alternative rock without the messiness of Sonic Youth,
but instead a focused and relatively clean sound.
An album to immerse oneself in for long periods of time.
