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

"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.
