Album Review: Angel Olsen - My Woman

Album Review: Angel Olsen - My Woman

Wednesday 12th October, 2016 12:37PM

Angel Olsenís third studio offering My Woman is a sustained release of emotion that feels as cathartic to the listener as the process of making it must have been for Olsen herself. In terms of musical arrangement, the 10-song record is deceptively minimal, but on repeat it yields varying textures Ė a jukebox in an echoey Twin Peaks tavern, a country Cocteau Twins, a sober Courtney Love, a drunk PJ Harvey. This surface sparseness, however, makes room for the albumís star instruments: Olsenís brain, the originator of lyrics so devastatingly simple as to move past clichť towards profundity; and her voice, the medium for those lyrics, which vibrates with emotion and occasionally with vibrato.
