Album Review: Throwing Muses – Sun Racket

Posted on 09 Sep 2020 at 8:07am

The problem with being an institution is that people expect you to behave like one.

Throwing Muses originally got together nearly forty years ago, have been reformed for nearly twenty, and present members Bernard Georges, David Narcizo and Kristin Hersh have all been there since more or less the beginning.

Not that their output has been so industrious since the hiatus ended in 2003; their tenth album, Sun Racket, follows its predecessor – the staccato and gnarly Purgatory/Paradise – more than six years further down the line. Maybe the expectation then was to produce something easily digestible as a veteran rock band should do, but instead the eventual project spanned a gargantuan near-seventy minutes runtime, and also jumped formats into a book, the soundscape oscillating between minute bursts and more trad lengths.

For casual observers hoping to reminisce about the trio’s brief post-grunge imperial phase, this wasn’t how the institution who’d made The Real Ramona and Red Heaven should be behaving.
