The Throwing Muses, who, like wine, seem to be mellowing and getting smoother
with age, are about to embark on a mini-tour of the East Coast to showcase
their just-released (Jan. 21) EP, Freeloader, the follow-up to last
year's album, Limbo. The EP features the title song alongside a few
bonus tracks, including a cover of the Latin Playboys "If," a live remix of
"Take" and a lullaby called "Heel Toe."
As a bonus for hard-core fans, the
band has also slapped together something called Throwing Muses' Live to Tape
EP, a six-track bonus pack of live in-studio performances of favorites like
"Shark," "Ruthie's Knocking," "Night Driving," "Serene," "Bright Yellow Gun"
and "Bea" that will be available for a limited time for the low-low price of
$4.98 (plus $1.50 s&h) at the Rykodisc website (www.rkyodisc.com or
These tracks were originally offered as a
promotional item to British DJ's, and later, American college jocks and will
only be offered until the limited run sells out, which, according to a Ryko
staffer, "is about to happen, if it hasn't already."
