I wasn’t surprised to find a Throwing Muses mention on Carol Bui’s website, it’s really one of the first things I thought of as soon as I heard todays side, “1”. Not that I would describe her songwriting as similar to Kristen Hersh of the ’90’s, but they are at times working from a similar no-frills rock environs. “1” can be downright hard, in the melodic sense; strong guitars and low strings to draw and fill out the lines.
Everyone Wore White is Carol’s second full length, and is out today on 54º 40′ or Fight!
