My Woman - Angel Olsen
Album opener "Intern" is a low-burn whoosh of melancholy. The rest of the album kicks up with stuttering pop rock tunes like "Shut Up Kiss Me" and folksy "Never Mine" and "Heart Shaped Face." The melody builds and stops and builds again on grungy epic tracks like "Sister" where Olsen shines with plaintive vocals. It's beautiful, bold work all around.
"Of course people are like: Who is the woman? Are you the woman? And I was like, 'I don't know! I am still finding that out!'" -Angel Olsen
