Kristin Hersh's solo life, her 'day job' as she calls it, is ongoing. She's recorded five solo albums - one prior to, and four since Throwing Muses split: Hips and Makers (1994), Sky Motel (1997), the internet-only-sold Appalacian covers collection Murder, Misery and Then Goodnight (1998), Strange Angels (1999), Sunny Border Blue (2001) and now a new solo album, The Grotto. Perhaps the most nakedly acoustic album she's ever made, it was recorded quick on the heels of the rampantly electric Throwing Muses album.
