I’m Wiped

I’m wiped; I’m so tired. That’s what Kristin Hersh wails towards the end of Your Dirty Answer, a song from her incredible (but apparently undersold) Sunny Border Blue album. Unfortunately, based on hearing her tonight at her free performance at Mercer Street’s Easy Street Records in Seattle–along with any number of other concerts I’ve attended for the last few years–it’s clear that it is her voice that’s tired. Kristin’s poor voice has grown steadily raspier with each passing year, which probably speaks volume about how badly her vocal chords were punished during their time in Throwing Muses and 50 Foot Wave.  

Be that as it may, Kristin is still my hero. She’s a brilliant songwriter; a mesmerizing performer; an artist of epic proportions. Yep, I idolize her. Her show tonight was short by necessity–apparently, after the show, she starts driving for the east coast, where she’ll be catching a plane to start a European tour. She did some songs from the new album–Learn to Sing Like a Star–as well as some older material.

It’s a good album. But it was Your Dirty Answer that got to me, as it always does. I’m wiped, I’m so tired. Carry me, Carry me for a little while. The most intensely sad song I’ve ever heard, like industrially concetrated melancholy so heavy it hurts to think about it. 

So, excuse me. I’m going to sit back and spin up some Hunkpapa. After all, I just drove home from Queen Anne, and I really am wiped.
