Artist Signing // Angel Olsen Joins Jagjaguwar Family

It is a special kind of day when you get to announce the signing of an artist as talented and all-consuming as Angel Olsen. Her voice is an incredibly strange, yet warmly inviting instrument always positioned at the forefront of her songs. The St. Louis raised, now Chicago-based singer began experimenting with her voice at a young age, recording tapes and then teaching herself to harmonize with those recordings. That process — of listening and recording and listening and recording — has imbued her music with a confidence and wisdom that extends as much to her arrangements as to the voice that defines her music.

And it’s little surprise, then, that her work is inspired by what she describes as “being home, feeling home within yourself. Simple things like homes and existence and death and birth.” Her music is defined by many of the same signposts by which folk music first defined itself — resonant images, bold voices, deeply human tones. And so Olsen is, to turn a phrase, bringing it all back home.

Enough with the words! With all of this, it’s best you just hear what exactly we are talking about. Watch Angel perform “Miranda” live at Grand Street Bakery – video below. You’ll also find Angel’s forthcoming tour dates listed at the end of the post. Read the rest of this entry »

“…animated and refreshing.”The Daily

“The Cave Singers synthesize folk, rock, and world music sounds from the 1960s through the present in an original way….Naomi is a thoroughly unique product.”Music OMH

Wolf People Announce Sophomore Album – ‘Fain,’ Stream First Single

Wolf People ring in 2013 with their sophomore album, Fain. Out April 30, the album was recorded in an isolated house located in the rainy countryside of Yorkshire Dales. They could not have picked a better atmosphere to put these new songs to tape. Available for your listening pleasure is the first single “All Returns” – listen above.

“Seemingly inspired by a dream in which an acquaintance of Jack Sharp looked into the songwriter’s eyes and picked apart the vagaries of his soul, it’s a typically bewitching, otherworldly return from the group.” Clash on “All Returns”

You can see Wolf People live at the end of March! They are playing three shows: Bedford’s Esquires on the 28th, Preston’s The Continental on the 29th and Sheffield’s Queen’s Social Club on the 30th.
