LSTN // Angel Olsen Live at WNYC’s Soundcheck

We’re all human. It’s hard for us to find stuff to agree on. The new Angel Olsen session and interview up at WNYC’s Soundcheck does not fall into this category. In fact, this performance is so darn good it’ll make you want to go out and buy an ice cream cone for your neighbor. Listen to “Always Half Strange,” “Some Things Cosmic,” and “Lonely Universe” first, though.

Now that you’ve had your listening fun, go see Angel live! Our strange darling is playing Pitchfork, End of the Road, and Hopscotch festivals this summer. She will also perform at London’s Bush Hall and Chicago’s Lincoln Hall. Dates and links available HERE.
