Even a somewhat inessential Waxahatchee video lets us remind you to check out Essential 2013 album Cerulean Salt. The Katie Crutchield-led project’s offhanded “Coast to Coast” visuals had a simple charm, which Joshua Mikel, who edited that clip, somewhat captures in the new one for “Misery Over Dispute.” Really, though, as elegant as the black-and-white cinematography and Crutchfield’s tap-dancing can be, this time the video works best as a vehicle for another smoldering Waxahatche fuzz-rock anthem. That said: Crutchfield looks to be a skilled tap dancer, with chops honed in 14 childhood years of dancing. The clip, shot in a Birmingham, Alabama, firehouse converted into a performance space, also serves as a preview for Crutchfield and co.’s upcoming tour with her sister Allison’s band Swearin’.
