Reveries for the laziest day of the week
12 March 2023
Enchanting Chicago voice ANGEL OLSEN (born Angelina Maria Carroll 36 years ago)
scored probably her best longplayer so far in her career with Big Time, her 5th LP,
She just announced a new EP named Forever Means with
songs from those Big Time sessions. It’ll be out on 14 April.
The first appetizer NOTHING’S FREE is a jazzy musing, lazy and soothing, with
some mellow saxophone, snug retro organs and, of course, Olsen‘s tempting,
Olsen: “It’s about that point when self-denial breaks and you notice how long you’ve been restraining who you are. It felt really difficult to exclude it from Big Time, but it felt more soulful than the direction of that record; it was coming from a different place. For me, when I wrote it,
I was coming to terms with my identity and sexuality. I was opening up in a new way.”
Dim the lights, sit down and enjoy.
