2017 Albums of the Year: Waxahatchee – Out in the Storm


The Telescope presents: the top albums of 2017. We gathered best-of lists from contributors, crunched some numbers and came up with a list of records that unanimously wowed us last year.

We already reviewed this one back in August, and there’s little more that needs to be added. Several spins later, it’s still a dead ringer for The Weekend’s self-titled debut.

And we know for sure, now, that nothing could be more attractive in a song than another person’s relationship woes, either because of the kinship found in being able to relate, or the satisfaction of knowing you’re faring better (coupled with the comprehension that happiness is fleeting).

“Does it make you feel good to watch me stumbling in the dark?” It does, yes.
