It is SO incredbily hard to rock the house with a tribute album--every fan knows the disappointment of listening to a bland and flaccid compilation. Yet HOT HANDS more than successfully blends the many ways musicians have been influenced by the dark, raw power of THROWING MUSES/Hersh/et al. into a heady, exhilarating stylistic trip through 17 interpretations of MUSES tunes: it also RAWKS!
True to the spirit and variety of the independent music scene and the way in which influence crosses across musical categories, the disc brings together a truly awesome variety of styles, everything from folk-tinged guitar ballads to synth-heavy dance tracks. Favorites: The Blood Group's 'Buzz,' Dirty Power's 'Hate My Way,' Phil Locke's 'Uncle June and Aunt Kiyoti,' Flare's 'Dizzy,' Taikonaut's 'Night Driving,' and John Ashfield's 'Portia.'

I've bought lots and lots of tribute CDs over the years -- I really enjoy the whole idea of a bunch of bands covering the work of a single artist. In general, they are hit-or-miss affairs, but this disc is one of the few that is consistently strong from beginning to end. There's not a bad apple in the whole bunch! The disc is best listened to with an open mind...there are lots of different styles and genres on here, so it's best to be open to new surprises and twists. Not all of the acts are well-known, but they are all very talented and worthy of broader exposure. Well done!

I've got an early copy of this CD and it's GREAT! The songs are not just great covers, they're great music. Period. This is an excellent collection, both for Throwing Muses & Kristin Hersh fans, and for people looking for an introduction to some great new bands they may not heard of.

Okay, I'll admit my bias as a contributor up front ... BUT ... the variety of styles on this disc makes for great company! I am truly honored to share disc space with artists whose work I already admire [ Flare, Waycross, Xiu Xiu ... all of whom should be HUGE! ... along with label mates Phil Locke, JDSexton, John Ashfield ] and those I've come to know and fully enjoy [ Dirty Power, HypoFixx, Quasimojo, Taikonaut .... damn, everyone else! ]. Fans of alt-country, electro-pop, folk-tronica, shoegazer, drone ... independent music, period ... are encouraged to join in the discovery. All top notch contributions ...
