Angel Olsen "Half Way Home"

Angel Olsen "Half Way Home"

Does an 8.0 on Pitchfork still mean what it meant say 7 years ago? It might not, but when it comes to the new album from Angel Olsen they could not have been more accurate. Half Way Home is powerful and gentle, folky and operatic, simple and complex, it is possibly one of the top releases by a Chicago musician in 2012. Olsen sings with a bubbling passion that she is constantly struggling to contain. There are moments where it spills out and those moments are thrilling.

Half Way Home was released by Bathetic Records on Sept. 4th and you can catch Olsen at Schubas on Oct. 6th with Dark Dark Dark.
