Describing the meaning of the album title, frontwoman Katie Crutchfield¬†said it represented the “directionless-ness, specifically of the 20-something, 30-something, 40-something of today, lacking regard for the complaisant life path of our parents and grandparents.” ¬†The widening generation gap is¬†not a new sentiment¬†by any means, but Crutchfield’s articulate and vulnerable turn-of-phrase¬†transforms an oft-cliched topic to an engaging and powerful listen.
A great singer/songwriter has the ability to write deeply personal songs without alienating the listener, relating their own failures, fears and learned lessons¬†with the rest of us. ¬†It takes humility and confidence. ¬†If you’ve paid attention to Waxahatchee’s last few albums, you’ll hear how much the group has grown in their production with the newest single Air, a stark and striking ode to the grand scape of lost love.
