Feb. 04 --Cerulean Salt, the second album from Alabama -raised and punk-weaned indie-folk singer-songwriter Katie Crutchfield -- aka Waxahatchee -- was one of the underdog success stories in pop music last year, finishing as the 31st-best album of 2013 in the estimation of the nation's music critics, based on the Village Voice's annual "Pazz and Jop" critics poll. Crutchfield's songs are downbeat, poetic and intimate, but not flowery or overly lachrymose.
