Out in the Storm, Katie Crutchfield’s fourth album as Waxahatchee and the follow-up to her Merge debut Ivy Tripp, is the blazing result of a woman reawakened. Her most autobiographical and honest album to date, Out in the Storm is a self-reflective anchor in the story of both her songwriting and her life.

The album was tracked at Miner Street Recordings in Philadelphia with John Agnello, a producer, recording engineer, and mixer known for working with some of the most iconic musicians of the last 25 years, including Dinosaur Jr. and Sonic Youth. Agnello and Crutchfield worked together for most of December 2016, along with the band: sister Allison Crutchfield on keyboards and percussion, Katherine Simonetti on bass, and Ashley Arnwine on drums; Katie Harkin, touring guitarist with Sleater-Kinney, also contributed lead guitar. At Agnello’s suggestion, the group recorded most of the music live to enhance their unity in a way that gives the album a fuller sound compared to past releases, resulting in one of Waxahatchee’s most guitar-driven releases to date.

Damn! thought I had everything I wanted for the time being. Ordered a deluxe via Rough Trade, they may be slightly more expensive but they don't take payment until the order is ready to ship so at least I can budget or cancel and order elsewhere if it's cheaper nearer the date..

Ivy Tripp didn't really do it for me but this sounds awesome.

What do you guys/gals think of this?

I liked it on first listen, but it didn't have my full attention.   I should get to it again this weekend.  Initial thought was that I liked it more than Ivy Trip (which I did enjoy).  I'm glad I got the demo LP too, think that will get just as many listens as the proper LP.
