Allison Crutchfield first cut her teeth in music in high school, co-fronting The Ackleys with her sister Katie (of now Waxahatchee fame). They were later inspired to form pop-punk outfit P.S. Eliot after catching a So So Glos performance in their native home state of Alabama. Allison began appearing on The Deli Philly site with her band Swearin', and later on charmed us with her lo-fi solo effort, Lean Into It. And after the initial spin of her new LP Tourist In This Town, via NPR Music's First Listen, we are totally lovin' it, and predict that 2017 is going to be a most excellent year for the talented artist. The album officially comes out January 27 via Merge Records, and her hometown record release show will be held on Friday, February 10 at the First Unitarian Church, where she'll be joined by her backing band The Fizz, as well as good buddies Radiator Hospital, Pinkwash, Empath, and Try The Pie.
