Visiting one of Austin’s many record stores is practically a prerequisite for attending SXSW, and artists aren't an exception to the rule. While in town to play a SXSW set, NPR captured Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield doing just that. In the video above, watch as she stops by End of an Ear where she picked up a record and even stumbled across a sticker for her own band.

“The things that we like to do, we do in every city and we have our favorite places in every city that we visit,” Crutchfield says in the video. “I like to go to thrift stores and vintage stores and to End of an Ear, which is my favorite record store.”

When she wasn’t hunting for vinyl, Crutchfield played a stellar SXSW gig at the Mowhawk. Diffuser was lucky enough to catch the Waxahatchee show -- check out our review here.

Waxahatchee is set to drop their highly anticipated third album, Ivy Tripp, on April 7 via Merge Records. It follows their 2013 full-length, Cerulean Salt. Crutchfield debuted Ivy Tripp’s lead single, “Air,” at the beginning of the year.
