Waxahatchee - ivy tripp

Waxahatchee is a Katie Crutchfield solo project but on this third album she has bought in other musicians to produce a bigger and somewhat more refined (but still raw) sound. However "Ivy tripp" is still often sparse and very personal.

Musically it often feels a bit retro, harking back to 90s indie, but thats no bad thing. "Under a rock" is a straight forward noisy indie rock classic, and follows an atmospheric feedback enriched opening "Breathless". "Poison" is exhilarating with waves of indie guitar thrash. Another excellent track is the stripped back and haunting "Half moon".
