Snail Mail – “Valentine”

It’s been a minute since Snail Mail released Lush, one of the best debuts from an artist in recent memory. After touring hard behind that album, Lindsey Jordan stepped out of the spotlight. The album’s official biography (written by friend and fellow musician Katie Crutchfield of Waxahatchee) notes that Jordan went to a rehab facility in Arizona, which is where she started to sketch out the shape of her follow-up despite not having access to her instruments. Earlier this year, Jordan went to Dur...

Music made 2020 better, but we failed to make 2020 better for musicians

“Are you okay?” I don’t have a good answer to the question. Knowing full well that I’m talking back to an algorithm — even one asking the same question of everyone with a different band mad-libbed in — doesn’t soften the blow. Am I? Are we? Is anyone, really? In this case, it’s referring to Waxahatchee. I mean, yeah, I totally listened to a lot of Waxahatchee this year. Waxahatchee is good. Saint Cloud was one of my favorite albums of the year. Katie Crutchfield’s music doesn’t exist in the Elli...

Kevin Morby – “Wander” & “Don’t Underestimate Midwest American Sun”

Kevin Morby announced his new album Sundowner earlier this month.

Kevin Morby – “Campfire”

Kevin Morby released a new album, Oh My God, just last year. It was a double album, so maybe none of us were expecting its successor to arrive so soon. But Morby's always been fairly prolific, and the scope of Oh My God didn't slow down his next chapter. Today, Morby's back with the announcement … More »

She grins when I voice my surprise at her ride. “I should have told you it was a ragtop with crazy tyres,” she says. It’s early March, and we head to a nearby coffee shop then she steers us into the city. As soon as I take out a n...

Premature Evaluation: Waxahatchee Saint Cloud

Katie Crutchfield creates a new vocabulary when she sings. Her voice curls around words -- she adds extra syllables to them and smushes them together, she fits them into places they cannot go. On Saint Cloud, her fifth album as Waxahatchee, Crutchfield's voice is more versatile than ever. Every enunciation feels purposeful, whether she's gasping … More »

Waxahatchee - "Lilacs" (Singles Going Steady)

Mick Jacobs: I see why people find this song so compelling. "And the lilacs drink the water" hits you with the same country beauty as Gershwin's "Summertime". As lovely and impressive this song is, I can't help shaking the feeling there's another one exactly like it. [7/10] Jessica Brant: The juxtaposition between the looseness of the instrumentals and the dancer's staccato movement is fantastic. This is a song I wish Katie Crutchfield would've partnered with Brittany Howard from Alabama S...

Stream: Waxahatchee, ‘Fire’

On the cover art for her new album “Saint Cloud,” her next chapter as Waxahatchee, Katie Crutchfield is perched atop an old pickup truck, its bed full of roses, with her face tilted toward the sky. She looks free. In a way, the Alabama-bred, Philadelphia-based artist says she is. In announcing her new album, due March 27 via Merge Records, Crutchfield says her new batch of songs were penned in the period following her decision to get sober and therefore were an exercise in reckoning. “I think al...

The 30 Best New Musical Artists of 2018

Amnesia Scanner Amnesia Scanner is the experimental electronic duo of Ville Haimala and Martti Kalliala. Created in late 2013, the group is not exactly new, but they have remained somewhat unrecognizable and wholly inaccessible until this year. As they used to refuse interviews and released several unannounced, unexplained EP's and mixtapes, Amnesia Scanner floated around as illegible codes for devoted listeners to decipher. Every track title was prefaced by "AS", and each music video reg...
