5 March 2023
WAXAHATCHEE is the moniker of the wonderful Alabama songstress Katie Crutchfield
who released her 2nd praised album 10 years ago today, on 5 March 2023.
Pitchfork said: “Cerulean Salt, Crutchfield’s new album, is going to be heard. But from
its opening moments, you get the sense that she’s ready for it, the newfound assurance, steadiness, and clarity of her voice immediately obvious… It’s that blazingly honest, hyper-personal quality that places Cerulean Salt in the tradition of Elliott Smith, early Cat Power,
or Liz Phair’s free-flowing Girlysound tapes– the work of a songwriter skilled enough to make introspection seem not self-centered, but generous.” Score: 8.5/10.
