50 Foot Wave is comprised of Throwing Muses front woman, Kristin Hersh, joined by Muses' bassist Bernard Georges, and new drummer Rob Ahlers. This is Hersh's first new band since she founded the Throwing Muses, and it's a harder, faster, more intense experience. She cranks up the punky guitar frenzy on this mini-album (they plan to release such mini-albums every nine months or so). And in songs fueled by wounded fury, the music holds on to the tightly wound shifting meters of Throwing Muses, but punches harder, as the lyrics grow more confrontational.
