Waxahatchee – Out in the Storm

The more we listen to this Waxahatchee—don’t ask us to pronounce that—album, the more we’re convinced it’s a reincarnation of the record we were hinting at when we posted that “Silver” video last week.

Out in the Storm is more lyrically sophisticated than that seminal debut by The Weekend, but the sentiment is comparable; this is the stuff of all good pop albums—failed relationships, insecurity, and in the end, renewal—and it’s far more world-weary than bedroom-bound.

Katie Crutchfield has surrendered a turbulent ride to us—one that trades blazing, cathartic blows (see “Silver”) with hindsight-wise parries (check out “Recite Remorse” below).
