As leader of Throwing Muses and, more recently, 50FootWave, Kristin Hersh specializes in careful, poetic observations couched in a variety of folk, pop and alt-rock settings. Like her fellow New England wordsmith Emily Dickinson, Hersh has an arch, literary perspective, so it’s no surprise that her latest release, Wyatt at the Coyote Palace, comes as both a double CD and a book, a dual format she has explored before. The music on Wyatt ranges from low-key, unplugged balladry (“In Stitches”) and rootsy folk (“Bubble Net”) to relatively uptempo but still acoustic-based songs (“Some Dumb Runaway,” “Christmas Underground”). Hersh plays all the instruments on the album, which was inspired in part by her autistic son Wyatt’s obsession with a local pack of coyotes.
