Hear This Session And You Will Understand Why So Many People Love Angel Olsen

April 1, 2014 - Angel Olsen is our guest today. Her third album, released in February, Burn Your Fire For No Witness has built greatly on the buzz of Halfway Home, which Pitchfork called "magnificent" in 2012. Her sometimes blood-chilling vocal style now blends perfectly with her band. The indie singer songwriter released her debut in 2011 after spending some time working with Bonnie Prince Billy (Will Oldham). She recently moved from Chicago to Asheville, NC after recording the new album there. This is a live set you really don’t want to miss.
