i can't stop listening to my woman. i've been playing a lot of her older stuff too but it seems like such an immense artistic leap happened between the older records and this one

Her band is so good on those long tracks like "Special" and "Sister" - it doesn't seem like the kind of music that demands three electric guitars but there's space for each of them to do something and the way they build tension is fantastic.
Listening to those two back to back makes me appreciate the rougher edges of "Special" even more.

Anyone into the new one?

I was very taken by the cover art of the new one, so I gave it a spin last night and geeked out when I discovered there was a cover of "Tougher Than the Rest" on it.

ooh, tougher than the rest cover you say...
listening now, this is (at least from tttr onwards) very understated, like her first albums, she really has something very special about her that make these simple acoustic guitar songs spellbinding

some of angel olsen's songs are just fucking incredible. i love the psychedelic guitar sounds on this one.

"sister" off the last album is a song i play a lot and think about a lot. "All my life I thought I'd change"

Sweet dreams rules. Orbison-Chris Isaac vibe with some dirty rock n roll

I had never heard her Springsteen cover, not sure I like the alone in a laundry room vibe to it. Also, I think she changes a minor chord to a major chord, which really alters the mood dramatically for me.

My current fave Angel Olsen track is 'The Waiting' off the first record. Glorious song.

Hey josh, alone in a laundry room is a good comparison. Ymmv but the latter half of the record is in that vein and a total bummer. First half is fairly solid tho

Phases is good. I was wrong. Good record for unwinding.
