WAXAHATCHEE - GREAT THUNDER VINYL (LTD. ED. OPAQUE YELLOW EP)
LIMITED EDITION OPAQUE YELLOW VINYL EP
Release Date: 7th September 2018
Katie Crutchfield returns to her stripped-back roots on this EP consisting of re-imaginings of tracks from her now defunct experimental output Great Thunder. Great Thunder is Crutchfield at her heart-achingly beautiful best, with just a piano or acoustic guitar and her stunning voice she stirs up so much emotion. If you were a big fan of her first record American Weekend, then you're in for a treat here!

"This EP features a collection of songs written with Katie Crutchfield’s now-dormant experimental recording group Great Thunder while she was also writing the Waxahatchee albums Cerulean Salt and Ivy Tripp. The original recordings have mostly faded into obscurity, but unearthing and reimagining them with producer Brad Cook at Justin Vernon’s April Base studio in Wisconsin was a cathartic experience, she says. On the heels of last year’s critically acclaimed Out in the Storm, Crutchfield found herself looking to take a sharp turn away from the more rock-oriented influences of her recent records towards her more folk and country roots. “I would say that it is a complete 180 from the last record: super stripped-down, quiet, and with me performing solo, it’s a throwback to how I started.”
