Waxahatchee - 2013 - Cerulean Salt

Waxahatchee are a three piece indie rock band from Brooklyn, New York City, USA. Cerulean Salt is their second LP. Waxahatchee is the solo project of Katie Crutchfield who has also played in P.S. Eliot and Bad Banana. Cerulean Salt is indie rock in it's most singer songwriter, acoustic, confessional best, even when they spin into some harder rocking sounds like on Coast To Coast it comes out like 90's fuzzy indie rock. When these songs are humming along at their best Waxahatchee remind me of a more singer songwriter, less punk rock focused old school Tegan & Sara and even when the songs don't grab me they remind me of a less folk influenced Po' Girls. Highlights include Hollow Bedroom, Blue Pt. II, Coast To Coast, Lively, Waiting, Swan Dive and Peace And Quiet. If you enjoy acoustic singer-songwriters or fuzzy indie rock Waxahatchee's Cerulean Salt will serve well. Thanks to the Elementary Revolt.
