ANGEL OLSEN

 

Missouri-born Angel Olsen and her stunning new record 'Burn Your Fire For No Witness' (Jagjagwar) is one of the most talked about records of 2014 so far. Delicate and original with songs like 'White Fire' and 'Hi-Five'. Its maker is a member of The Cairo Gang with Emmett Kelly (Dom Pub). She's worked with the likes of  Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Marissa Nadler. ‘Half Way Home’ her debut album of 2012 was a work of poetic profundity delivered on acoustic guitar, with mere hints of double bass and drums and by a remarkable voice. Now, ‘Burn Your Fire For No Witness’ (produced by John Congleton, now also signed to Dom Pub) has blown-out, full-band energy which kindles an intensity that’s always been present in her songs and fans the flames even higher.
