Go Record Shopping With Waxahatchee's Katie Crutchfield

Maybe it goes without saying, but if you're a musician and have time to kill on the road, you're going to hit up a record store in town. In Austin, Texas, there are many, many options to throw down cash for vinyl, and for Waxahatchee's Katie Crutchfield, her favorite record store is End of an Ear.

During SXSW, we joined Crutchfield on her Austin ritual to pick out a record and captured a nice little surprise when she stepped up to the checkout counter.
