Coast to Coast" - Waxahatchee Via SoundCloud. Last year's American Weekend, Katie Crutchfield's piercing debut as Waxahatchee, got passed around like a secret. On the surface, it was a modest record- 11 lo-fi acoustic songs written and recorded in the span of a week while snowed in at her parents' neighborless Alabama home near the body of water from which the project takes its name.
After releasing the 2011 Waxahatchee debut, American Weekend, as a more homespun solo acoustic outing, Cerulean Salt finds Crutchfield joined by some supporting musicians, amping up the production values, but, above all, finding a far deeper voice for her songs. Musically, the tunes have the cloudy atmospheres of some of the more unheralded late-'90s punk outliers.

Waxahatchee – 'Cerulean Salt'. Despite its proudly lo-fi nature, Katie Crutchfield’s 2012 debut ‘American Weekend’ made significant underground waves for its smart, emotional directness. This follow-up raises the stakes significantly. The template’s not dissimilar but everything feels amplified and intensified; there’s an electrified crunch and more sense of light and shade in the music’s dynamics.
