My Best Concerts of 2014 (Part 1)
Nick Cave: I saw him twice this year, and it was totally spectacular because I even met him in person! First, at the Los Angeles premiere of his fake autobiographical movie, ‘20,000 days on Earth’ at the Egyptian theater on June 10th
10 Songs: Friday, December 26th, 2014
White Water – Angel Olsen – Another haunting masterwork by the solemn sodded big time indie wench of 2014, with natty little one liners like “she wants to be naked and elegant”, and a hefty rhymic hook to take it home and haunted Siren vocals. Nifty – B+
Angel Olsen at The El Rey, Thursday December 4th 2014
During she show, she came up with new arrangements, modulated her vocals, slowed down each syllable, giving me lumps in the throat and chills on the spine. Wearing a vintage low-necked black dress, perched on high heels, she looks like an apparition, and I am not just playing around a metaphor inspired by her first name, the first rows only have eyes for her: it was a love fest there
Watch Angel Olsen's New Video For 'Windows'
The video is an enigmatic beauty, beautifully shot, and it shows Angel and her famous blank stare, as she goes from total expressionlessness to a real sadness frozen on her face, while her emotive song is played
Listen to 'May As Well' By Angel Olsen, A Song Released For Her Deluxe Edition
’May As Well’ is streaming on my computer right now and the song is so moving and touching it pierces you right in your heart, your soul, your guts or wherever you believe your being resides, but in any case, it is a deep experience
Not With The Band: Women In Music, Have We Really Made Any Progress?
‘I’m tired of men who aren’t professional or even accomplished musicians continually offering to ‘help me out’ (without being asked), as if i did this by accident and i’m gonna flounder without them. or as if the fact that I’m a woman makes me incapable of using technology.”
An Angel Visits Brooklyn
I managed to miss a mid-February Amex presale and an on sale for a concert May 13at MHOW and only today actually noticed it at all. It was sold out maybe needless to add, she is one popular star right this minute in the indie firmaments.
Angel Olsen At The Echoplex, Sunday March 2nd 2014, Reviewed
Totally in charge all night long, she had a very calm charisma and the confidence of an old soul. Angel did not give any long discourse but these short sentences between her songs were enough to build a strong connection with her audience which was already captivated by her performance
Best Albums Through February 28th, 2014
Burn Your Witness For No Fire – Angel Olsen – With her sophomore album, Angel redefines her singer songwriter loner folk Billy “Prince” Billy approved experimental classic songs for electronic full band and it works on nearly every track. High five.
Best Songs Through February 28th, 2014
A handful of real good singles by U2 (yes, really), Beck, Miranda Lambert, The Civil Wars, and some albums that really stink (hi Eric Church!) have a couple of good songs. Altogether 102 songs and listen to em all here:
rock nyc Top 10 Songs w-o 2-24-14
Three women have ruled February: Angel Olsen, Katy B and Lydia Loveless which, despite disappointment (relatively speaking) in Little Red is still a very strong effort. Lydia reminds me of Liz Phair, or do I mean Elvis Costello, on her immense and sprawling album of disastrous love affairs. Angel Olsen came of age.
That Was The Week Of February 17th, 2014, That Was
The week belonged to two women, Angel Olsen and Lydia Loveless but on the charts Eric Church has a baffling success with the terrible The Outsider… even Rolling Stone only gave it four stars so you just know it sucked.
Be Here Now: Snapshot Reviews Of Today's Album Releases 2-18-14
these stories of love gone wrong are entirely astounding singer-songwriter country informed pop rock that gets under your skin on the first listen. My friend Mark Deming of Allmusic called it a contender for the album of the year. Well, definitely the week – A
Sneak Peak: New Album release 2-17-14
Queens faves Bayside, though I wasn’t that thrilled the last time I saw em live at Best Buy, get the nod this week. First runner ups Suzanne Vega and Angel Olsen and honorable mention to PLANNINGTOROCk. Now let the game of what to Spotify have and not have begin… so far they’ve missed out on Broken Bells and Eric Church.
'White Fire', Angel Olsen's Devastating New Track
White Fire’, the new song off her upcoming and second album is a slow and long one, ruminating longing, regret and hurt, it’s simply devastating and the song will remind you the style of her debut album ‘Half Way Home’ that she released in 2012. Her druggy-sleepy voice, like numbed by the pain
Listen to Two New Songs By Angel Olsen,… My Next Favorite Songwriter?
Her voice may remind you something old, half Roy Orbison half Loretta Lynn, tremolo-ing like some authentic and intimate entity, while the guitars vibrate and make your head spin like this disco ball… ‘Are you lonely too?’ she sings, ‘High five – so am I’…
