EDITORS’ NOTES

In five short years, Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield has become one of indie rock’s strongest songwriters, exploring murky feelings with a clarity and confidence that make even quiet moments hit like a gut punch. Her second album for indie stronghold Merge strives to find freedom in heartache, combining the hooky, rock-oriented sound of 2015’s Ivy Tripp with the bare-all lyricism that made Cerulean Salt an instant touchstone, from the hushed “A Little More” to the stomping “Never Been Wrong.”
