RIYL: Sharon Van Etten, Mitski, Stevie Nicks
Label: Jagjaguwar Records
Angel Olsen is a master in the art of surprise. ¬†A chameleon at heart, she’s presented album after album that has exceeded expectations and dodged typecasting. ¬†At one moment a sparse folk artist, at the next a garage rocker and then an alt-country gal and on and on it’s gone. ¬†Most record collectors scoff at compilations, but Phases makes complete sense with a songwriter like Olsen. ¬†If we’re getting a collection of unreleased songs that have been written over the last couple of years, we’re in for an eclectic treat. ¬†Instabuy for sure.
It looks like there was a package being offered with a signed poster, but those are long gone now. ¬†The limited olive green wax is still available, though. ¬†I imagine there are at least a few thousand of these, so no need to panic. ¬†Listen to the first two available b-sides below and grab the vinyl after the ‘buy’ link.
The b-sides compilation is both a testament to Olsen‚Äôs enormous musical range and a tidy compilation of tracks that have previously been elusive in one way or another.
