Waxahatchee plays with The Babies at Glasslands on 04.27

Waxahatchee plays with The Babies at Glasslands on 04.27

Waxahatchee is the now Brooklyn based solo project of songwriter Katie Crutchfield, formed after the breakup of punky, Alabama based band P.S. Eliot (another ex-member of that band is now involved in Philly based Swearin'). The project's sound trades that trio's aggressiveness for a more thoughtful and folky approach, without giving up entirely the occasional distorted guitar burst. The single from the album ("Coast to Coast," streaming below) is a more uptempo number that takes us back to the glorious days of the (poppier) riot grrl period - think a fuzzier Juliana Hatfield or Liz Phair. Pitchfork gave the album its Best New Music blessing, which is still pretty much a career building event, and probably the main reason why you want to go see Waxahatchee live this Saturday 04.27 at Glasslands when she will be opening for The Babies.
