Sunny Border Blue





In her previous release, Sky Motel, Kristin Hersh got rid of her schizophrenic ìdemons,î writing most of the highly electrical music under her own control. Sunny Border Blue is a return to ìthe songs writing themselves,î she states, and the result is just as youíd expect: equal parts oddity and brilliance. She finds herself in the middle of an unassuming mix of acoustic guitars and strained, breathy vocals, with nothing but bizarre, unattainable truths springing from her lips. Her angers and fascinations run throughout the album: the first single, ì37 Hoursî captures the loneliness and frustration of waiting for disappointment, while the light-hearted ìRubyî recounts a tale of her young son finding a cough drop on the back set of her car and mistaking it for a jewel. The major sound is reminiscent of the acoustics of Strange Angels with the abstract art of the Throwing Muses, University era. Definitely worth it for a look into a very divided mind.
