Waxahatchee Oct tour

2/07/2013

 Waxahatchee's unbeatable album Cerulean Salt came out yesterday, Monday 1st July and the press and public reaction has been astounding. 

Some highlights below:

 

Katie Crutchfield has a way of delivering a line so casually that it takes a half-dozen listens to fully realise how devastating it is… the work of a songwriter skilled enough to make introspection seem not self-centered, but generous’ 8.4 Pitchfork

Album Of  The Week in Time Out  "This is intimate, confident songwriting, lent real intrigue by the apparent gap between Crutchfield’s lyrics – which are simultaneously starkly honest and tricksily complex – and the music which is as warm, blunt and welcoming as an old and trusted friend. Then there’s Crutchfield’s voice: a natural, unfussy and wonderfully expressive thing reminiscent of Kim Deal or Nina Nastasia. We’d suggest that ‘Cerulean Salt’ was a indie sleeper hit in the making, but it could well be more widely appreciated than that" http://www.timeout.com/london/music/waxahatchee-cerulean-salt-album-review

“Crutchfield's songs deserve to be heard by as many people as possible"  Guardian Guide

“An intimacy and directness which will surely make ‘Cerulean Salt’ one of 2013’s biggest albums… a lethally brilliant concoction” 4/5 Q Magazine

"Truths rarely come as beautiful as this" 8/10 NME


“Crutchfield would no doubt laugh it off, but she’s already something of a star and, whatever direction she chooses to take, her potential seems boundless” 4/5 Mojo

‘It’s something of a triumph’ The Fly


‘This combination of musical innocence and lyrical experience draws you in... Waxahatchee has made this seemingly slight, unassuming record; one that sounds just a little more epic with every play’ ‘Album of the Week’ The Observer
 

Fake DIY are running a guide to Waxahatchee piece on their NEU pages at the moment... “What the UK might not know about the 24-year-old, however, is that she's far from a newbie. Not only is 'Cerulean Salt' her second record as Waxahatchee, but the artist has a whole back catalogue from previous projects just begging to be your new, old favourite band. Such is 'A Brief History Of...'s aim.”  http://www.thisisfakediy.co.uk/articles/features/a-brief-history-of...waxahatchee/

Katie's interview with Noisey is live on their UK blog, here: http://noisey.vice.com/en_uk/blog/we-talked-to-waxahatchee-about-feelings-feminism-and-fan-mail

Line Of Best Fit - 8.5/10 album review. “The songs betray Crutchfield’s punk background, but they are punk reduced to its rawest form. Basic four-chord guitar progressions are backed by a spartan rhythm section, the fact that so much is achieved with so little enhances the intimacy and DIY aesthetic of the album.” http://www.thelineofbestfit.com/reviews/albums/waxahatchee-cerulean-salt-128417

The Music Fix - 7/10 album review. “Cerulean Salt keeps that rougher lo-fi feel, just with added volume. In some ways Crutchfield has made quite a throwback album, its female grungy indie-pop hasn't been heard for a while.” http://music.thedigitalfix.com/content/19140/waxahatchee.html

Sound Of Confusion - mini album review. “'Cerulean Salt', the second album from Katie Crutchfield, better known as alt-rock artist Waxahatchee, is something we've been looking forward to since hearing its first single 'Peace & Quiet' at the start of the year.” http://thesoundofconfusionblog.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/out-this-week-1st-july-2013.html

Sic Magazine - 7/10 album review. “Cerulean Salt‘s real power however is its honesty. Crutchfield and her songs are completely, suffocatingly believable.”
