Cosmic Streams: Angel Olsen

By: Laurie Gallardo

Angel Olsen fans and new fans alike were absolutely blown away by her LP All Mirrors. It was a more massive arrangement compared to previous releases, a production built from an acoustic dream into something with bigger orchestral momentum. It’s magnificent. But any Olsen admirer will tell you that the first track on her first studio album, Half Way Home (2012), also mesmerizes the senses instantaneously. For real. Those vocals on “Acrobat” alone make your knees buckle.

Olsen is the next artist featured on the Cosmic Streams live stream series at Noon Chorus. She’ll perform  tracks from  Half Way Home, as well as her 2010 EP Strange Cacti, among other assorted favorites. See Olsen perform at 8 p.m. (Central) tomorrow, Thursday June 18, at this Noon Chorus link. Proceeds from the show benefit the YWCA in Asheville, North Carolina, which is committed to “eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, and equality for all.”
