Great Thunder, the collaborative project of Katie Crutchfield (Waxahatchee) and Keith Spencer (bass/vocals in Swearin' and drums in Waxahatchee's live band), are releasing a new 30-song double LP, Groovy Kinda Love, on December 10 via Salinas Records, who also just released the Swearin' album. It follows this year's Strange Kicks EP, and it can now be streamed in its lengthy entirety below.
Waxahatchee and Swearin' are currently touring together, and as discussed, in early 2014 Waxahatchee will head out with All Dogs and Cayetana on a tour which hits NYC on January 21 at Mercury Lounge and January 23 at Glasslands. Tickets for Mercury Lounge and Glasslands are still available.
Speaking of All Dogs, they also just released a new 7" on Salinas Records, and that can be streamed below as well.
All Dogs share a member with Saintseneca, who also recently announced a tour.

Waxahatchee at 285 Kent earlier this month (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Before that she also plays the free, all ages WBAR-B-Q at Barnard College in Morningside Heights. In addition to Waxahatchee, the lineup includes some great bands like Twin Sister, Speedy Ortiz, Roomrunner, Scott & Charlene's Wedding, Krill (who just replaced Swearin'), and others. It runs from noon to 8 PM, and as the flyer points out, is open to the public:
You can also catch Waxahatchee for free in NYC again this summer. She was added to the previously announced Generationals/Sallie Ford show happening on July 11 on Pier 84 as part of the free, all ages RIver Rocks series.
In related news, we recently mentioned it in a What's Going On? post, but in case you missed it, Waxahatchee's Katie Crutchfield and Swearin's Keith Spencer released a new EP for their Great Thunder project. It's called Strange Kicks and you can stream it in full below.
Waxahatchee isn't the only band playing WBAR-B-Q who also plays a NYC show that night. Speedy Ortiz, who just signed to Carpark for their debut album, are playing a previously discussed release show for their new 7" at Shea Stadium (4/27) with Aye Nako, Butter the Children, and Advaeta. Admission is $8 at the door. You've already heard the a-side from Speedy Ortiz's new 7", and you can now stream the b-side, "Hexxy," below. They have other upcoming shows too.

Great Thunder, the project of Waxahatchee's Katie Crutchfield and Waxahatchee/Swearin's Keith Spencer, released their new EP, Strange Kicks, over the weekend. Stream the whole thing, including the bonus track which is a cover of Mazzy Star's "Fade Into You," below. Did you catch them at Maxwell's on Saturday (4/20) with Screaming Females, Shellshag, Swearin', and Hilly Eye?
Shellshag at Don Giovanni 2013 Showcase (more by Caroline Harrison)
Brooklyn duo Shellshag, who recorded the track, "Green Vapors," with Screaming Females for their Chalk Tape, will release their new album, Shellshag Forever, on April 16 via Don Giovanni. The album features the track, "Face to Face," which Shellshag performed an acoustic version of for the BrooklynVegan 'Green Room Sessions', and you can stream the punky studio version below. Also below is the album artwork and tracklist.
As usual, Shellshag have a number of upcoming local (and some non-local) shows. Most excitingly, they'll share a bill with Screaming Females on April 20 at Maxwell's, which hopefully means they'll collaborate on stage during "Green Vapors." The rest of that show's lineup is great too, including Swearin' (who play Indie Pop Prom tonight [2/28]) Hilly Eye, and Great Thunder (the project of Waxahatchee's Katie Crutchfield and her boyfriend/Swearin' bassist Keith Spencer). Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Shellshag's other local dates include Friday (3/1) at Lulu's (113 Franklin St), March 11 at Acheron with Pity Party, March 21 at Silent Barn with Extra Feeler, and April 13 at Union Pool with RVIVR, Dogjaw, and Extra Feeler. Advance tickets for the Union Pool show are on sale now.

Waxahatchee at Saint Vitus in 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Waxhatchee (aka Katie Crutchfield, formerly of PS Eliot) will release her sophomore album, Cerulean Salt, on March 5 via Don Giovanni, and you can stream the first single, "Peace and Quiet," below. The album sometimes features a fuller band approach than her mostly acoustic debut, American Weekend, and the recordings aren't as raw, but the songs are no less intimate.
Waxahatchee will be going on a tour this winter which includes two previously discussed NYC dates. One of those is the Don Giovanni showcase at Music Hall of Williamsburg on February 8 with Laura Stevenson and the Cans, Jeffrey Lewis, Lemuria, and Hilly Eye (tickets; and the other is Indie Pop Prom on February 28 at 285 Kent with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Swearin' (Katie's sister Allison's band), Weed Hounds, and Potty Mouth (tickets). Both shows have great lineups and either would be a good place to see her.
In related news, Katie also plays in the band Great Thunder with her boyfriend Keith Spencer (who also plays bass in Swearin') and that band plays their first Brooklyn show TONIGHT (1/24) at Death by Audio with Heavens Gate, The Guts, and Marvin Berry & the New Sound.
