Katie Crutchfield has left her lo-fi roots behind, but she’s never sounded so good on this, her sixth solo LP. Opener 3 Sisters is grand and epic, all heartfelt Americana vibes at their most sincere and stirring, setting the tone. Evil Spawn embraces Crutchfield’s strong country influences and her voice sounds stronger than ever, highlighted by the stripped back 365.

Lyrically, she’s inspired; the rhyming couplets on Lone Star Lake would leave any songwriter wishing they’d thought of it first. Lead single Right Back To it is a beautiful duet with MJ Lenderman with a banjo lead that is to die for, making this the kind of record that takes am indie favourite and turns them into superstars.
