Album Review: Angel Olsen – Whole New Mess

Posted on 08 Sep 2020 at 7:56am

Maybe a church is the best and worst place to write songs: if you’re saying a prayer they’re rarely heard, but if you’re making a confession then there’s just a chance you’ll pay down something that helps you find peace.

Angel Olsen recorded Whole New Mess in a converted church in the small town of Anacortes, Washington, with only engineer Michael Harris for company. Conceived as the heartbroken cousin to the theatrical, string laden All Mirrors which followed, in the process Olsen was both making demo material and mapping the wreckage of a relationship.

The St. Louis born singer had been releasing music for a decade, but All Mirrors had seemed to be a sort of full stop. This outing though comes laden with the suggestion that her output to-date has not so much been a natural progression as merely the next gas station on an unplanned emotional road trip.

Album Review: Angel Olsen – All Mirrors

Posted on 15 Oct 2019 at 8:31am

Confusion. Indecision. Fear of change. These more problematic elements of the human condition will likely be familiar to many at certain junctures of life.

Whether it’s moving to a new city to start afresh or picking up the pieces of a broken relationship, grappling with an internal dialogue about what the hell it all means and who you want to become once you reach the other side can be challenging, if not impossible, to articulate.

This hasn’t stopped Angel Olsen giving it her best shot on All Mirrors, her fourth LP and follow-up to 2016’s My Woman. My Woman saw Olsen continue her steady journey into the gaze of the mainstream with the help of breakout hit Shut Up Kiss Me, signalling a foray into a more direct alt-rock driven sound ahead of the previous explorations of contemplative folk.

If Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours expertly captured the tempestuous aftermath of embittered break-ups within the all-too-close-for-comfort confines of an L.A. studio, Olsen took a very different approach after the realisation, mid-tour, that her own relationship couldn’t be rectified. An isolated writing process ensued in the remote climes of Anacortes, Washington, as Olsen doubled-down on her bid to reconnect with her emotions in attempting to find answers within the depths of some of her darkest, most introspective and revealing songwriting to date.
