Angel Olsen on NPR's World Cafe (interview + 3 live songs)


Singer-songwriter released her début album in 2011 after spending time working with Bonnie 'Prince' Billy. Her third album, Burn Your Fire for No Witness, was released in February. Olsen's voice can be intense, even chilling, in ways that blend perfectly with her band. She recently moved from Chicago to Asheville, N.C., after recording Burn Your Fire for No Witness there.

Here, Olsen performs a live set (Hi-Five + Forgiven/Forgotten + Windows) in the World Cafe studio.

i discovered her at the most perfect time and listening to her music was so therapeutic!! especially the song "Creator, Destroyer", I heard it when I was at my loneliest. Strange Cacti is just perfection.
