Throwing Muses were founded in 1980, over the course of the last 4 decades they have pioneered and defined 'alternative rock'. The band have released numerous critically and commercially acclaimed albums over the years, while building an international reputation for their ferocious live shows. ‘Sun Racket’ is the brand new album from legendary Boston trio, now 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.
