50 Foot Wave
Label: Orchard Enterprises Inc
Kristin Hersh is back with a power trio that sounds louder and harder than any of her ethereal efforts on the 4AD label. 50 Foot Wave's debut is laden with a chunky guitar crunch and vocals that seem kissed by cartons of cigarettes. The songs are steeped in driving pre-punk quirkiness juxtaposed with heavy guitar leads.
