Kristin Hersh, 'Learn to Sing Like a Star' (Yep Roc)

6
Learn to Sing Like a Star
Critical Mass
Label: Yep Roc

by Mikael Wood

'Stars Learn to Sing Like Me' might've been a more accurate title for the latest solo album by this 40-year-old mother of four, whose mid-'80s power trio, Throwing Muses, laid the groundwork for subsequent women-in-rock heavyweights like Polly Jean Harvey and Sinéad O'Connor. Dialing down the fury of her newish neo-grunge act 50FootWave, Hersh reconnects with her arty folk-rock roots, as if trying to demonstrate her individualistic chutzpah. It won't satisfy hook-hungry Jewel fans, but Learn to Sing wears Hersh's experience like a custom-tailored hair shirt.
