Heart And Soul In Vocal Motion – ‘WHOLE NEW MESS’ By ANGEL OLSEN

Music fro the laziest day of the week…

30 August 2020

Artist: Angel Olsen (Asheville, North Carolina, US)
Album: Whole New Mess
Info: The record features nine songs, stripped to the
bone, from her magnificent 2019 album All Mirrors and
two new songs, title track ‘Whole New Mess‘and sensitive
reverie ‘Waving, Smiling’.

Released: 30 August 2020

NME verdict: “Most of these songs appeared in maximalist form on last year’s acclaimed ‘All Mirrors’, but stripped-back versions reveal their true power… Most artists keep their demos to themselves, pulling them out of a dusty box in the attic only when someone at the label suggests they bolt them onto a flashy anniversary release or if the Record Store Day goodie box is looking a bit empty… If ‘All Mirrors’ took you to a lavish, creaky ballroom, then ‘Whole New Mess’ tucks you away in the cupboard under the stairs, the door slammed tightly shut. Olsen had always planned to release the original recordings of the ‘All Mirrors’ songs, but wanted the bolder, louder versions to come to her fans first. “I thought it would be more interesting to see something explosive, and then take a look back to where it started to do it the other way around,” she’s explained of her plans to flip the order in which the albums came out.
Score: 4/5.

Angel Olsen: “I’m trying to embrace this part of myself that’s unpolished.”

Spine-Tingling Voice ANGEL OLSEN Shares New Emotive Track From Upcoming Album – ‘WAVING, SMILING’

New sonic impulses…

19 August 2020

Divine voice NAGEL OLSEN releases A WHOLE NEW MESS,
the stripped-down version of the album that became last
year’s magnificent LP  All Mirrors on 28 August.

Besides nine songs we know from All Mirrors a Whole New Mess
contains also two new songs. The previously shared title track
and this highly sensitive reverie WAVING, SMILING.

“‘Waving, Smiling’ in my head is the last scene, a slow-motion realization
of love not lost but at peace somewhere within myself. It’s the bittersweet
end of a chapter of my life — it is the final acceptance that despite coming
to an end all of that time was not lost or wasted”
tells Olsen in a statement.

I just can’t get enough of ANGEL OLSEN. Her voice is both divine and real, captivating and heavy-hearted. Only yesterday she shared single ‘WHOLE NEW MESS’. The title track of her new, upcoming album. A chilling ballad.

Yesterday night she played the song live on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in a quarantine studio. Her arresting performance is just breathtaking. Shivers down your spine grandeur. And did I already say she’s awesomely gorgeous? An angel, indeed.

“When it all fades to black, I’ll be gettin’ back on track”…
