Pass the headphones, Michael. This month’s choice is inspired by the announcement that one of my favourite small venues, the very brilliant Picturedrome at Holmfirth, will be hosting Kristin Hersh and her band Throwing Muses later in the year.
Your Ghost comes from Kristin Hersh’s 1994 debut solo album, Hips and Makers and features Michael Stipe of R.E.M. on backing vocals. The album was in stark contrast to Throwing Muses, featuring primarily acoustic songs with Hersh playing mainly unaccompanied. It is stunning so sit back and enjoy.
