Hope Chest

Genre: Rock; Producer (group): Elektra

Like many of today’s foremost bands, 10,000 Maniacs spent time in the independent-label farm system before finding a mass audience. Remixed and reissued on a single disc, the group’s first two releases contain a louder, stranger version of its refined electro-folk.
