We're not sure what kind of cosmic alchemy the Crutchfield sisters inherited, but Katie, of Waxahatchee, and Allison, of Swearin', are two of the most gifted bedroom-pop songwriters we know of. The sensibility they share is showcased also on Allison's new solo EP of home-recorded tracks, Lean In To It, which she released on her Bandcamp this weekend; it includes this song, "You," which figures her one-of-a-kind vocals over a looped keyboard line (making me think of a tradition of solo artists performing in this style, like Olivia Neutron-John and Jane La Onda) as she reckons with her decaying relationship with a scene elder. It's a lovely, wistful track, perfect for the end of summer. Check it out below, or listen to the whole EP on Bandcamp.
