Angel Olsen – Burn Your Fire For No Witness

Singer-songwriter Angel Olsen offers a change of pace from her bold, rootsy sound on her last album.

Angel Olsen – “Hi-Five”

The new Angel Olsen track, “Hi-Five” is the definition of a “woozy rocker.” The song is driven by a nice, crunchy indie rock groove, and Olsen’s forlorn vocals sure match the looped visuals of the accompanying video – closing with a shot of Olsen apparently strewn across the confetti-covered floor of a venue she just played. Enjoy!

“Hi-Five” is to be featured on Burn Your Fire for No Witness, due out February 18 via Jagjaguwar. Check out our review of 2012′s Half Way Home here:

Angel Olsen – “Forgiven/Forgotten”

Singer-songwriter Angel Olsen goes electric and heavy on this new track from her forthcoming record, which is set to drop via Jagjaguwar on February 18th! The title of this thing: Burn Your Fire For No Witness. While I’m not huge on this mid-paced, slightly lo-fi garage rock sound, Angel’s intensely passionate vocals still burn through the chaotic production. With a voice like this, I’m game for surprises this album has to offer. Enjoy!

Angel Olsen- Half Way Home

On her latest effort, Angel Olsen delivers a quaint and simple set of contemporary folk tunes with a few alt-country detours. Though the sounds are pretty familiar, it’s her wonderfully bold voice that brings it all together.


Angel Olsen- “The Waiting” (Loved)

A track from Half Way Home, which is the latest album from Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Cairo Gang cohort Angel Olsen. It’s a pretty wonderful tune, too. It well-sung, emotive, and I love the desperate romance coming from the lyrics as well. The bass and drums are pretty modest, but there are some pretty sweet background vocals and harmonized guitar leads that give this song some sweet personality. Let’s be honest, though: The real grit is coming from Angel on this track.
