Oh my gosh it’s been awhile, but welcome back to Knock Knock: New Music! Getting back at it after a major surgery was a bit more challenging than I expected, but I've been busy listening and have a ton of great new songs to share with you moving forward.
Let’s begin with singer/songwriter Angel Olsen. She got her start performing in coffee houses in St Louis, before moving to Chicago, and eventually Asheville, North Carolina. She’s on-tour, as we speak with a stop at Royale in Boston on Tuesday November 19th.
“All Mirrors” is her fourth album… It’s out now on Jag-Jaguwar Records and unlike some of her previously stripped-down albums this one features some lush and powerful moments courtesy of a 14-piece orchestra. Olsen says, “ In every way — from the making of it, to the words, to how I feel moving forward, this record is about owning-up to your darkest side, finding the capacity for new love, and trusting change, even when you feel like a stranger.”
I love this album! Let’s go with the title-track, “All Mirrors.” It’s waiting for you now on the Knock Knock: New Music playlist. Happy listening! -Kristen
