The walls of Jericho would have been no match for Angel Olsen’s heart-wrenching debut, 2012’s “Half Way Home”. Â Armed with a mere acoustic guitar, Olsen’s fragrant, evocative voice outmatched the loudest of critics and the laziest of comparisons. Â The female Bonnie “Prince” Billy, the modern Joan Baez, the list was endless.
Perhaps she took these comparisons to heart, because Angel Olsen has gone electric, yall. Â Trading her acoustic in for some fuzz pedals and a drummer, Olsen’s new single is a complete U-turn, a garage psych “Maggie’s Farm” in the face of her hardcore folk fanbase.
You can buy the record by itself for $15.99 or in a bundle that includes a limited 7” for $22.99. Â Your call, kimosabi.
