"…Katie Crutchfield latest album is once again filled with her deeply raw and honest autobiographical songwriting, but here she returns to her southern roots, infusing her song with indie-folk and Country-rock - the sounds of contemporary Americana - a genre that subconsciously focuses the listener on fully appreciating Katie's immense lyrical and vocal talents… it took me a while, but I suspect this is her best album to date…"

Katie Crutchfield’s southern roots are undeniable. The name of her solo musical project Waxahatchee comes from a creek not far from her childhood home in Alabama and seems to represent both where she came from and where she’s going.
With Stranger in the Alps Phoebe gave us a typical singer songwriter style which was amazing. On punisher she has started to take in many influences from the music world around her. Making this album have such a unique style to it, that I am in love with. Drenochrome
This album is so beautiful, it hurts, especially 'yellow is the color of her eyes'.
But I can't choose a favourite song because each one corresponds to a different mood. All the musicians are dope, and Sophie Allison is a very talented songs writer and musician/singer. Saramachine
