[lastfm]Throwing Muses[/lastfm] founder [lastfm]Kristin Hersh[/lastfm] is hardly your typical rock star, and her new solo album, Crooked, takes her career in yet another new direction. The listener-funded, Creative Commons-licensed project began as demos, was remixed by fans, finished off by Hersh, and is being released in various forms, including as a book. Pre-release tracks "Coals" and "Rubidoux" shine with Hersh's familiar dusty voice and driving guitar riffs--warm in the center but edged in tension.
