Episode 250: Tourist In This Town - Allison Crutchfield
Allison Crutchfield (twin sister of Katie Crutchfield aka Waxahatchee) has paid her dues in bands like P.S. Eliot, Bad Bananna, and Swearin', but on her new LP Tourist In This Town (Merge Records) she's blasting off into a whole new phase of her career. Lousy with emotionally supercharged synth jams, Tourist reveals Crutchfield as one of the most vibrant voices of her generation, so of course, we're gonna talk about.
PLUS! Sampha's Process drops in a few weeks. We've got a taste of this masterful R&B excursion.

Revolution that is is now playing out in the streets across our nation.In solidarity with those protests and, more importantly, to not just celebrate the art of people of color but make space for their voices and stories, we've "remixed" our 2017 conversation with "Ab" about the creation of Dialogue,the state of existing while black, and more.
