KRISTIN HERSH – “Your Ghost”. Kristin Hersh dug into her backlog of compositions for material of an intensely personal nature that she felt wouldn’t be suitable for her band on her solo debut, Hips and Makers. In stark contrast to her work with Throwing Muses, Hips and Makers is almost entirely acoustic. The opening track, “Your Ghost,” features a duet with R.E.M. singer Michael Stipe.
