Watch: Kristin Hersh Performs New Throwing Muses Songs In London

I’ve been listening to the new album today, and it’s fantastic. I think longtime Throwing Muses fans will really like it, but I also think the current indie crowd will dig it too. And anyone else with an open mind.

Check out some of the live performances:
