Waxahatchee, the band led by Katie Crutchfield, begins World Cafe's week-long series Sense Of Place: Philadelphia. The first two Waxahatchee albums are filled with images of her home state of Alabama, but Crutchfield and her sister Allison have more recently lived in Philadelphia. They relocated to the city for the reasons many musicians do: space and a welcoming music community.

Waxahatchee's last album, Cerulean Salt, was extremely well received; Katie Crutchfield calls her recent follow-up, Ivy Tripp, a natural progression. Here, she discusses the album and performs a session with her full band.
