On My Woman, Angel’s disarming, timeless voice is even more front-and-centre than before, and the overall production is lighter.
Listen to “Shut Up Kiss Me” here
Modern noises vanish when Olsen sings. From the bracing incantations of 2012’s Half Way Home to Olsen’s folk-rock opus, 2014’s Burn Your Fire for No Witness, her name is now synonymous with a voice.
“Angel Olsen's latest is her best record yet, a bracing mix of sounds and styles congealing around songs of pain, sadness, and hope.” -Pitchfork
My Woman walks a tightrope of love to figure out what it is—how to find it, how to allow it in, how to feel it, how to fight for it, how to let it go—by a person who does not lose herself in the process.
“So much of My Woman is rock‘n’roll in the traditional sense, from a ’50s or ’60s jukebox, and it is positively electric, a total blast.”
Angel Olsen –My Woman
My Woman excels by embracing Angel’s ability to both command complete control over the creative process while also embracing influence from various collaborators and circumstances.
Because her new songs demand a plurality of voices, Olsen sings in a much broader range of styles on the album:
Angel brought in guest guitarist Seth Kauffman to augment her regular band of bass player Emily Elhaj, drummer Joshua Jaeger and guitarist Stewart Bronaugh.
