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

By Iman Lababedi | December 26, 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

By Alyson Camus | December 7, 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'

By Alyson Camus | November 21, 2014

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

By Alyson Camus | October 31, 2014

’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?

By Alyson Camus | October 7, 2014

‘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.”

By Iman Lababedi | April 19, 2014

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

By Alyson Camus | March 5, 2014

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

By Iman Lababedi | February 26, 2014

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.

By Iman Lababedi | February 25, 2014

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.

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.

'White Fire', Angel Olsen's Devastating New Track

By Alyson Camus | February 14, 2014

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?

By Alyson Camus | January 17, 2014

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’…
