Waxahatchee – Peace and Quiet

Title: Peace and Quiet

Artist: Waxahatchee

Album: Cerulean Salt

Year: 2013

Genre: Indie Rock, Lo-Fi

The first thing you notice in every song by Katie Crutchfield’s solo project Waxahatchee is the electric guitar. Her aching lo-fi debut, recorded at her parent’s small lake house on Alabama’s Waxahatchee Creek. Following the footsteps of her idol and a master in lyrical misanthropy Morrisey, “Peace and Quiet” finds Crutchfield doing what she does best.

“If I try to write a song that’s happy or angry, I feel cheesy,” she admitted in our recent interview. “That is just naturally where I go — sad.”
