Wyatt at the Coyote Palace by Kristin Hersh
Kristin Hersh - Echo (Official Video)
Published through her own co-founded nonprofit organization CASH Music, the double album is a purely Hersh -oriented affair, with the alt-rock hero handling all of the parts. Having that kind of freedom can be a creative death knell for some artists, but Hersh has always operated in another realm, both sonically and lyrically, and she takes to the open-ended format with gusto. Opener "Bright" starts off on familiar ground, with Hersh fingerpicking one of her signature spectral melodies.

Wrapped in a Stung Tension – Kristin Hersh’s “Wyatt at the Coyote Palace”
Anyone describing the mammoth body of work of Kristin Hersh would use just about every word in the English language before considering 'ordinary'. The whole release comprises two CDs and a book, where the lyrics for each song are printed alongside an anecdote, normally one wherein Hersh narrowly escapes death, sometimes accompanied by an image. Musically it's about as Kristin-Hersh-solo-work as it could get, and at its best at that, made up of layered acoustic guitars playing chord sequences and melodies that move seamlessly between bizarre and accessible, combining the two in a way that needs to be heard to be believed. With her raspy voice over the top, it has that sense of earthiness that feels just a little magical, painting images and evoking sensations that feel weirdly reminiscent of this scene in The Craft. With her acoustic guitars she paints in pinky reds and oranges and warm, earthy greens, and her lyrics zoom in on the natural aspects of her stories of near death, augmented by her occasional use of field recordings. The effect is like one of a strange sort of reverse colouring in: she first paints the colours of the images in shapes that could seem equivocal, then adds the outlines last to clarify the details.

Written by: Dave Cantrell. Aside from a lack of un-cringeworthy alternatives — what might be proposed in its stead? Great admirer? The song eventually evolves into one of those trademark Hershian pieces, half lacerating half empathetic, full of lurch and sway, establishing along the way that this most consummate of artists is still the most undistracted member of her class. However she has, she has, and you move on grateful. By whatever reading, its hypnotic appeal merits special attention. It is, instead, rather freeing.
