New Music from 50 Foot Wave

50fotowaveOut of the ashes of Throwing Muses came 50 Foot Wave, and they’ve been blasting rock n’ roll since 2003. It’s interesting to hear Kristin Hersh amidst the current climate, especially since her voice and style has definitely influenced the work of a lot of current female artists, whether they’re aware of it or not. This track opens fairly casually, just Hersh and a maneuvering guitar, waiting for the rhythm section to join her. Soon after the 30 second mark the band picks up the energy, giving heavier riffs while Hersh’s powerful vocal performance dominates your speakers. I appreciate the fact that the surface level of this track seems so simple, yet beneath it lurks varying changes in structures and time; it should make for a powerfulalbum worth of tunes; look for Bath White on may 27th via HHBTM Records.
