Waxahatchee, aka Katie Crutchfield, will release her Great Thunder EP on Friday, Sept. 7. The next day, she performs at The Miracle Theatre in a show presented by Union Stage.
The songs on Great Thunder were originally produced with an experimental recording group of the same name. Katie recorded the songs while also writing Waxahatchee albums Cerulean Salt and Ivy Tripp. Recently, she dug up the recordings and decided to issue them on an EP via Merge Records.

On the Great Thunder songs, Waxahatchee switches from rock to country and folk.
“I would say that it is a complete 180 from the last record: super stripped-down, quiet, and with me performing solo, it’s a throwback to how I started,” Katie said. “Overall, the EP is a warm, kind of vibey recording.”
