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.

i should listen to phases again. it didn't grip me like "my woman" but it's possible that's my fault. she's really brilliant.

phases is a tough sell, i posted about it ad nauseam earlier so will try not to repeat myself but it dovetails in the second half into a real downer of a record - sparse, ragged acoustic and more like her earlier material. by the end of the album i was done with my hard liquor and felt like dying, it is a real bummer.

interesting. she's one of those songwriters who really makes you feel what she wants you to feel so i can imagine if she wanted to she could really pummel her listeners with despair.

totally! give it a second chance perhaps :)

also the first few tracks are fire so it may be unfair to expect the rest to follow suit, and it is a bsides collection as well.
