Her seventh solo album in the books, Kristin Hersh now has a body of work stretching back two decades to when her band Throwing Muses tossed the angst-ridden teenager directly into the indie-rock spotlight. Hersh has made great personal strides since branching off on her own, each record of engaging pop music serving as a reflective document of her impulsive lifestyle, each song allowing her voice to grow from young and girlish to broadly mature. She plays most of the instruments on all 14 songs, several of which deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina (Hersh once lived in New Orleans) and a personal misfortune in her own home. Heartbreak practically drips from Hersh's voice when she vows that "getting up is what hurts" in the commanding rocker "Day Glow" or admits that "nervous energy keeps us busy" in the pensive "Ice." As usual, the turbulently talented musician picks herself off the mat with the self-deprecating instrumental "Christian Hearse," the Nirvana-like "Under the Gun," and "Winter," complete with tubular bells, strings, and an Irish-tinged chorus that is as triumphant as the artist herself. --Scott Holter

Product Description
Kristin Hersh's prolific career spans twenty years, from founding pioneering post-punk art-rockers Throwing Muses (at age fourteen!) through more than ten Throwing Muses records, eight solo releases, and three releases with her harder-than-ever punk rock outfit 50FootWave. Learn to Sing Like a Star, her most recent solo outing (and first on Yep Roc Records), might finally be the rock record Hersh has hinted at for years - an intense, openly emotional and beautiful statement. Produced by Kristin and mixed in Nashville by two time Grammy winner Trina Shoemaker, Learn to Sing Like a Star comes across as the lovingly obsessive work of an artist who never fails to "bring it" - an indie-rock symphony

Awesome album, definitely up there with "Sunny Border Blue", "Hips & Makers", "Sky Motel" and "Strange Angels" as far as quality is concerned.
