Throwing Muses

Audio for this story from All Things Considered is not available.

Jacki talks to Rolling Stone editor Anthony DeCurtis about the new CD by Throwing Muses, "University." DeCurtis says that Throwing Muses was a precursor to the group of young bands led by women that have recently become popular. There are a lot of nonnarrative lyrics in the songs by the bandleader, Kristin Hersh, who uses the voices of her children and the ocean in some of the compositions.
