New Track: "Angeles" (Elliott Smith Cover) - Waxahatchee

American Laundromat just released a new compilation album, Say Yes!: A Tribute to Elliott Smith. It features contributions from indie favorites like Julien Baker, J Mascis and Lou Barlow just to name a few. Below is West Philly's Waxahatchee, a.k.a. Katie Crutchfield, with her own electrified rendition of "Angeles," off 1997's Either/Or. (Photo by Scott Murry)


P.S. Eliot Wrap Up Reunion Tour at PhilaMOCA Sept. 19 & 20

Katie and Allison Crutchfield received their inaugural taste of musical success in Birmingham, AL with the first band that they formed in high school called The Ackleys; however, after its members went off to different colleges, the group eventually disbanded, leading the twin sisters to their next musical endeavor, P.S. Eliot. The feminist pop-punk quartet, which also included Will Granger and Katherine Simonetti, prolifically wrote and recorded music before calling it quits in 2011. Of course, you most likely already know that Katie Crutchfield has gone to gain fame recording under the moniker Waxahatchee, and Allison has too with her band Swearin’. Earlier this year, P.S. Eliot announced that they would be reuniting to tour and release a 50-track compilation album, 2007-2011, via Don Giovanni Records, which features remasters of 2009’s Introverted Romance In Our Troubled Minds and 2011’s Sadie, as well as their 2010 Living In Squalor EP, demos, and home recordings. Well, they have been on tour for the past week or so in support of their latest release, and will be wrapping it up with an exciting two-night run of sold-out shows at PhilaMOCA, starting this evening with labelmate Moor Mother and Boston’s Fleabite and concluding the following evening with Philly friends Radiator Hospital and Pouty. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $12 (Sold Out), All Ages - Alexis V. 

New Waxahatchee Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

While Katie Crutchfield gets ready for her reunion tour with sis Allison and the rest of P.S. Eliot, we also now have a collection of her earlier works under her moniker Waxahatchee, aptly titled Early Recordings. “At first I was tentative about re-listening to these recordings, but the nostalgia I felt when re-hearing them was warm, and I thought it might be nice to make them available again,” said Crutchfield. The album is now available via Merge Records, and you can stream it below.


Weekend Warrior, June 3 - 5

Tonight at Union Transfer will be Connor Barwin’s third annual MTWB Benefit Concert. The show, which has hosted buzz bands like Mac Demarco and Kurt Vile in the past, has one of its strongest line-ups this year, which includes Philly’s own Hop Along and Waxahatchee. Barwin, who recently signed a new six-year deal with the Eagles, has been a presence both in the local music and parks & recreations scenes since coming to Philly. He befriended R5 Productions’ Sean Agnew, and has cultivated a super positive event. Each year, Barwin has upped his game for the concert, and this year is no exception. There will also be special guest performers this evening (like Blue Note artist Ryan Anthony Massaro ;-). Every dollar that is raised at the show - both from tickets and bar sales - will be matched by MTWB and donated to a new project in Philadelphia. You can get cheap tix or ball-out for an opportunity to drink and schmooze with some Eagles, but remember it’s all for a great cause. Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden St., 7:30pm, $5 - $300, All Ages - Adam G.

New Track: "We'd Never Agree" - P.S. Eliot & Announce New Reissue Compilation and Shows

Before most of the world heard of Waxahatchee or Swearin', Katie and Allison Crutchfield cut their teeth alongside Will Granger and Katherine Simonetti in pop-punk outfit P.S. Eliot. Well, the band just announced that it will be releasing a new 2xCD compilation, titled 2007 - 2011, on Septempber 2 via Don Giovanni Records, featuring recordings from their studio LPs Introverted Romance in Our Troubled Minds (2009) and Sadie (2011) and the Living in Squalor EP (2010), as well as demos and home recordings. Take a listen to the single "We'd Never Agree" below. P.S. Eliot will also be reuniting for a run of shows, and Philly folks can catch the gang at PhilaMOCA on Monday, September 19. (BTW: Waxahatchee also recently announced that she'll be releasing a new reissue collection called Early Recordings on June 17 via Merge Records.)
