Anyone reckless enough to have typecast Angel Olsen according to 2013’s Burn Your Fire For No Witness is in for a sizeable surprise with her third album, MY WOMAN. The crunchier, blown-out production of the former is gone, but that fire is now burning wilder. Her disarming, timeless voice is even more front-and-centre than before, and the overall production is lighter. Yet the strange, raw power and slowly unspooling incantations of her previous efforts remain, so anyone who might attempt to pigeonhole Olsen as either an elliptical outsider or a pop personality is going to be wrong whichever way they choose – Olsen continues to reign over the land between the two with a haunting obliqueness and sophisticated grace.

Given its title, and track names like ‘Sister’ and ‘Woman’, it would be easy to read a gender-specific message into MY WOMAN, but Olsen has never played her lyrical content straight. She explains: “I’m definitely using scenes that I’ve replayed in my head, in the same way that I might write a script and manipulate a memory to get it to fit. But I think it’s important that people can interpret things the way that they want to.”

That said, Olsen concedes that if she could locate any theme, whether in the funny, synth-laden ‘Intern’ or the sadder songs which are collected on the record’s latter half, “then it’s maybe the complicated mess of being a woman and wanting to stand up for yourself, while also knowing that there are things you are expected to ignore, almost, for the sake of loving a man. I’m not trying to make a feminist statement with every single record, just because I’m a woman. But I do feel like there are some themes that relate to that, without it being the complete picture.”

  14. Jason Jancosek August 2, 2018 at 12:45 am #

    my girlfriend just got laid off from an awful job. call it a blessing in disguise, or whatever you want. she’s been down in the dumps for a couple weeks now. each day is a little easier, but i just find it harder and harder to make her smile. angel is her favorite singer/songwriter/musician these days and it just might be the bit of good rock & roll news to reclaim this summer before it starts raining again.

  15. Ben Bauer August 2, 2018 at 10:34 am #

    It’d be very very fun. I really like her music. Me and my girlfriend would love to go!

  16. Ben Bauer August 2, 2018 at 10:35 am #

    I listened to Burn your Fire through an incredibly difficult two year period in my life and finally came out of that period over the past six months. I would love to finally see and honor the woman whose voice saved me innumerable nights.
