Angel Olsen at the Media Club in Vancouver Sunday. Her new album, Half Way Home, is out on Jagjaguwar. It follows her debut 2011 release, the Strange Cacti EP.

Originally from St. Louis, Olsen has been receiving a lot of praise in the press. To wit:

“Ms. Olsen understands the power of holding back, and feeding out extravagance in small portions. People stopped buying drinks; the bartenders put their elbows on the counter, engrossed. It was remarkable… Ms.Olsen has found her sound – her voice, alone and untreated and slow, conjoined with the specific resonance of her guitar – and she’s able to replicate a private discovery in front of a crowd. That’s a lot.” –The New York Times
