Angel Olsen

Having toured as a co-vocalist and guitarist with Bonnie “Prince” Billy, and signed to Bon Iver’s label Jagjaguwar, Angel Olson could easily have been the new darling of indie-rock. However, her breakout record “Burn Your Fire for No Witness” — produced by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Walkmen) — is a far rockier and uglier affair than her reputation would suggest, loaded with murky, sometimes maniacal guitars and a PJ Harvey-esque wavering roar. The 25-year-old St. Louis singer/songwriter also earned a good live buzz with her new band at South by Southwest. Nashville’s Promised Land Sound and Houston trio the Awful Truth open.
