Storm King Art Center | Old Pleasant Hill Road
Kick off the 2014 Outdoor Music Series at Storm King with a concert featuring Waxahatchee and Luke Temple performing with views of the Art Center’s celebrated sculpture collection installed across the fields, rolling hills, and woodlands.
Katie Crutchfield is a natural at writing confessional pop songs. Since picking up the guitar as a teenager she has spent the better part of her young adult life travelling the country to play basement shows for feminist punks, singing with several different bands. Deciding to go it alone, Crutchfield became Waxahatchee and released her debut album American Weekend in 2012. Its lo-fi acoustic guitar-pop songs made for one of the year’s best unsung records. A critic at Pitchfork labeled Waxahatchee’s oeuvre as “an emotionally piercing collection of acoustic guitar and isolated sweet-sung poetry.”
Luke Temple’s newest solo album, Good Mood Fool, draws from myriad influences, from the hushed soulful wail of Curtis Mayfield to the dense harmonies of Gill Evans and the Bulgarian Women’s Choir. It is meant to be clear in production and in content, hiding nothing.
