New Release: Angel Olsen – Phases

Angel Olsen has announced the release of Phases, a collection of rarities and demos spanning her career thus far, including a number of never-before released tracks, on November 10th via Jagjaguwar

Balancing tenacity and tenderness, Phases acts as a deep-dive for longtime fans, as well as a fitting introduction to Olsen’s sprawling sonics for the uninitiated

From the lo-fi, sparse folk-melancholy of her 2010 EP, Strange Cacti, to the more electrified sound of last year’s beloved and acclaimed MY WOMAN, Olsen has refused to succumb to a single genre, expectation, or vision. Impossible to pin down, she navigates the world with her remarkable, symphonic voice and a propensity for narrative, her music growing into whatever shape best fits to tell the story

Phases opens with Fly On Your Wall, previously contributed to the Bandcamp-only Our First 100 Days fundraiser, before seamlessly slipping into Special, a brand new song from the MY WOMAN recording sessions. Take a listen to both, below…
