Angel Olsen - Arcobat

Angel Olsen's Half Way Home has been played a lot here at our house. Olsen is a singer songwriter from Chicago with a powerful voice that recalls a lot folk singers from old, I even get a bit of a Nick Drake vibe on some of the tunes. She has been getting a lot of attention from this release with rewrites appearing in the New York Times. The album is beautifully produced with powerful performances. I had the fortune of seeing her perform a month or so back and everyone should go see her live. The record came out on my friend's label, Bathetic. They are sold out of copies and they are fetching high prices on Discogs right now but they are planning to do a second pressing. I strongly encourage to seek out this record.

Above is the video to the chilling tune Acrobat.
