This week we're playing the new album from Waxahatchee, the moniker of Katie Crutchfield, titled Out In The Storm. It's unapologetically a breakup album, but it finds optimism in heartache. A lot of people are writing about it this week, but the best comments come from Katie Crutchfield's twin sister and longtime musical collaborator Alison Crutchfield, by way of this interview conducted by The Mothership. In it they discuss each other's albums, as Alison Crutchfield released her solo debut album earlier this year. On the new Waxahatchee song "Sparks Fly," Alison Crutchfield gets a shout out at an especially moving moment.
Left of the Dial airs Friday night from 9-11 and Saturdays from noon-2 on KRCU.
