On their third album, Hunkpapa, Throwing Muses' volatility settled into a jangly, angular style of college rock. Though Hunkpapa is somewhat disappointing, the album's best moments rank among Throwing Muses' finest work.

1. Devil's Roof Lyrics.

Throwing Muses, The Grotto Throwing Muses, Kristin Hersh. But this time her efforts were tempered with a commerciality that had previously been the domain of Donelly. A lot of this comes down to Gary Smith’s rather over-lush production. While taking off a lot of the edge, it brings Hersh’s Dizzy to life and can’t even begin to dull coruscating fare like her tale of a prostitute, Bea. But what really keeps Hunkpapa in the realm of greatness is the band’s ability to keep up with Hersh’s idiosyncratic muse

Throwing Muses is the 1986 debut album of the band Throwing Muses, released on British independent label 4AD. This was the first album by an American band to be released on 4AD, which had concentrated primarily on British-based acts up to this point. The release marked a shift in the label's direction; a year later 4AD would sign Pixies based in part on the band's connection to the Muses, and by the mid-1990s much of the label's roster was made up of American bands.
