A blessing to discover something of depth and skill and clarity. Lashings of simple yet powerful lyrics repeat throughout the music of Angel Olsen, music which in itself is fairly minimal; guitar, synthesized ambiance, reverb washed vocals – yet it’s extremely effective – some kind of winning recipe, achieved only occasionally in a world overflowing with music.
We have yet to find a song we don’t like, and there’s enough variation between tracks that you don’t get bored of it at any point.

Which did make it difficult to choose just one song for the feature, but we went with our gut.
