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.”

    “Maybe you know it’s been too long
    Going through the motions as you sing your song
    Doesn’t matter who you are or what you’ve done
    Still got to wake up and be someone
    Still got to wake up and be someone”

    Let me intern with a resume
    To see Angel Olsen on this day
    So I can wake up and not be afraid
    That I won’t be the one unswayed.

  23. Katie September 19, 2019 at 2:58 pm #

    Who doesn’t love Angel Olsen? I’d really love to win tickets!

  24. Emmy September 19, 2019 at 4:43 pm #

    I love her! Want to see this, been too long since I’ve been to a show. Let’s get this mama outta the house!

    • David Brooks October 29, 2019 at 3:32 pm #

      Let’s see. There’s Mary Kate. Ashley. Elizabeth. And cousin Angel. I’m betting there will be no Pipeline contests to see the first three in person anytime soon. So as one who set a goal of seeing at least one of the Olsens in 2019, I would like to throw my pork pie hat into the ring in hopes of winning two tickets to Angel. My companion will know at least all of the songs.
