Allison Crutchfield – Tourist in This Town

Allison Crutchfield is best known as the frontwoman of the band Swearin’ (and sister of Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield). Her solo debut comes on the heels of the breakup of both her band and relationship, and this influenced many of the songs’ lyrics. On this album, synth keyboards are added to the guitar driven sound in her previous work in Swearin’. Highlights are the energetic powerpop of “Dean’s Room” and the more pensive “I Don’t Ever Want to Leave California”.
