Having stripped back the big guitars, well-honed noise, and battering sounds that characterised her previous 2 records, Waxahatchee has gifted us a classic americana sound with modern touches befitting an artist emerging as one of the signature storytellers of her time.
an intimate journey through the places she’s been, filled with the people she’s loved. written immediately in the period following her decision to get sober, the album is an unflinching self-examination. this raw, exposed narrative terrain is aided by the aforementioned shift in sonic arrangements as well. many of the narratives on ‘saint cloud’ concern addiction and the havoc it wreaks on ourselves and our loved ones, as Katie crutchfield (Waxahatchee) comes to a deeper understanding of love not only for those around her but for herself. ffo: lucinda williams, weyes blood, emmylou harris, angel olsen “It’s a demanding listen and also a joyous one — the rejuvenation of a spirit whose distinctive voice we all so desperately need.” - Stereogum
