KRISTIN HERSH Murder, Misery And Then Goodnight

Murder, Misery And Then Goodnight (4AD) is a folk collection from the one-time Throwing Muse; Kristin Hersh.

Sex and violence isn’t just a product of cheap cable television and video nasties – nah, it’s a little older than that. Quite a lot older if ‘s collection of Appalachian folk songs is anything is go by.

With the stabbings, murders, infanticide, deceptions, betrayals and bitter remorse things get a bit Cave-ish at times but Hersh pulls it off without seeming to try as hard.
