It held some real beauties, like "Catfish", "Grass stain" and "Bathtub" and was recorded
at her parents home during a single week in the winter. Pretty poor sound quality couldn't
ruin the impression of a major talent at work.
On "Cerulean Salt" she enlists the help of a three-piece band and the result is an album
with few flaws. The opening five songs make up for a perfect succession of songs, maybe
with "Brother Bryan" as the shiniest among them, and it's not much on it worth skipping.
I think the up-tempo rockers are the weakest tracks. By no means bad songs, they remind
me of another good album; Belly's "Star", but I still think these songs doesn't suit
her as well as the slow ones.
Cat Power is maybe the most obvious reference point here, and it will surprise me if this
doesn't go down especially well with people who have a soft spot for the "Moon Pix" album.
In some ways she can also be likened to Nina Nastasia.
4.5 stars. Beautiful stuff.

I know it's early in the year, but Waxahatchee's second effort under that name is 2013's best record (so far.) Great song writing. Very highly recommended.Published on March 24, 2013 by gbv4me
