  • Name: Waxahatchee
  • Location: Brooklyn, NYC
  • Genre: Alt. Folk
  • For Fans of: P.S. Eliot, Best Coast

Waxahatchee is the solo project of Katie Crutchfield, who undertook the journey after the demise of previous day job, P.S. Eliot. She's just released her second full-length, Cerulean Salt, and been fawned over all week at SXSW. 'Peace and Quiet' is one cut from her recent record, an hómage to '90s slacker-rock – it's slightly dishevelled, laden with shambling chords and sublime, slurred vocals. It's muscular despite the grunge-ness, and the guitar recalls millenial pop-punk.
