Throwing Muses

@ Sydney, Sydney, 16 January 2009

Boston band Throwing Muses formed in 1983 by step-sisters Kristin Hersh and Tanya Donelly and pioneered a thrillingly raucous form of 'alt rock' years before the term existed. Their extraordinarily textured, tempo-shifting music, combined with Kirstin’s intuitive, dextrous singing, joins the dots between elliptical post-punk, harmonious folk jangle pop and rockabilly thunder. Having toured and collaborated with The Pixies and REM’s Michael Stipe in their time, the Muses bring to the Bar a sweltering show of arresting melodic structures and articulate songcraft.
