The walls of Jericho would have been no match for Angel Olsen’s heart-wrenching debut, 2012’s “Half Way Home”.  Armed with a mere acoustic guitar, Olsen’s fragrant, evocative voice outmatched the loudest of critics and the laziest of comparisons.  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.  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.  Your call, kimosabi.
