Katie Crutchfield’s 3rd album melds the powerful lo-fi acoustic tracks full of lament that made up her debut 'American Weekend' & the more solid, developed sound of her follow-up, 'Cerulean Salt'.
'Ivy Tripp' drifts confidently from these previous albums & brings forth a sound that has more in common with juliana hatfield, throwing muses or even husker du. The lament & grieving for her youth seem to have been replaced with control & sheer self-honesty. "Opening on distorted, droning guitar fuzz with touches of a synth-y melody sprinkled throughout, 'Breathless' makes it clear that Crutchfield has stepped up her sound production-wise, though her knack for minimalist music as a vehicle for her knife-in-the-gut lyrics & vocal delivery remains as intact as ever" 9/10 - exclaim!
