Waxahatchee - Out in the Storm DLX 2LP (Ltd Dbl LP Edition)Label: Merge Records
LIMITED EDITION: Black LP w/ limited bonus LP of album demos on white vinyl.
Out in the Storm 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 KATIE CRUCHFIELD's songwriting and her life. The album tells the story of taking control of a volatile situation, embracing flaws, and exploring a new sonic freedom. The album was tracked at Miner Street Recordings in Philadelphia with JOHN AGNELLO, 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. Crutchfield’s voice oscillates between effortless grace and commanding righteousness, taking the listener with her on an explicitly personal journey. CD packaged in 4-panel uncoated digipak with foil stamp and printed insert. Regular LP version in uncoated jackets with foil stamp, black dust sleeve, a poster and download. Deluxe LP version in uncoated gatefold jackets with silver foil detail, black dust sleeve, full fold-out poster, download and a bonus ten track disc pressed on white vinyl.
