Angel Olsen's style steps up

By Marc Zisman |

"All Mirrors", Angel Olsen's 4th album, is the American singer's most stylistic work yet.

Three years after {My Woman}, an album which saw her move even further away from her main influences (Cat Power, Hope Sandoval from Mazzy Star, Kate Bush, PJ Harvey) as she pursued her grungy indie folk (which incorporated Americana and vintage sounds) Angel Olsen has signed a more silky, shimmering and even luxurious production here.

There are no commercial compromises in {All Mirrors}, just a clear desire to soak her music in less troubled waters…

The sound is bigger, the arrangements more elaborate and the instrumentation even includes strings, again impeccably measured. Much like Annie Clark a.k.a. St Vincent, Olsen blends a powerful explosion of fury and strong self-acceptance, boosted by impressive melodies. The American is also at ease in moving from dark atmospheres to almost playful sequences.

A stylistic richness that becomes even greater each time you listen to it.
