Swearin'

  • Swearin' [Salinas, 2012] **
  • Surfing Strange [Salinas, 2013] *

Consumer Guide Reviews:

Swearin' [Salinas, 2012]
As her sister Katie toegazes with her Waxahatchie side project/one-off, Allison Crutchfield dons the grrrl-punk mantle with less musical, verbal, and vocal distinctness ("Movie Star," "Hundreds and Thousands") **

Surfing Strange [Salinas, 2013]
Sweet sad gal and dreamy nerdy guy let their tuneful murk do the talking--well, drawling ("Dust in the Gold Sack," "Watered Down") *
