Track of the day : Angel Olsen : Forgiven/ Forgotten

I’ve just got past thinking the name Angel Olsen sounds like that of an adult film star, which is a good thing since I think we’ll be seeing it a lot next year. On February 18 the St. Louis songstress (and former Will Oldham cohort) will release her second album, and first for the Jagjaguwar label, entitled Burn Your Fire For No Witness, and by the sounds of first single “Forgiven/ Forgotten” it’ll be a more incendiary affair than her stripped-back, mostly acoustic debut Half Way Home; not that that record lacked heat – far from it! – but with the addition of electric guitars and a full band Olsen looks set to explode in 2014. Check out the video below.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
