To my ears, she was among the alternative / indie rock era's most identifiable and inventive bassists. Whereas most post-punk players traveled a limited roots-only route, Throwing Muses' Leslie Langston was a dexterous, melodic player who anchored Kristin Hersh and Tanya Donelly’s compositions with passages that exuded funk and soul influences.
