Kickin’ Up a Sisterly Storm, Swearin’.

Kickin’ Up a Sisterly Storm, Swearin’.

A busy year for Katie Crutchfield of Waxahatchee renown will doubtless get a whole load better next month when, on November 4th, sister and onetime P.S. Eliot foil Allison’s Swearin’ release sophomore recording Surfing Strange on Wichita. The two outfits team up for what will surely be a night of transporting, retrospective ’90s scuzz at London’s Scala October 22nd while The Shacklewell Arms will likely still be suffering from the Brooklynite four-piece’s predestined onslaught of the previous evening, and nothing sounds better primed to put the “cracks in the ceiling” than Dust In The Gold Sack.

A whirlwind blitz to have picked up influence from far and wide – the woozy whammy bar jitters of many a Bossanova doozy; the breathless lo-fi gusto of Last Splash; the fervent yowling of Carrie Brownstein and Corin Tucker circa Dig Me Out, and so on – Dust In The Gold Sack proves caustic acoustica-cum-electric ruination at its prime. And suddenly it sounds as though we’ll henceforth go pogoing through October to the sound of not one, but two Crutchfield kinswomen…

Surfing Strange is expected November 4th via Wichita Recordings.
