VENUS VINYL OF THE MONTH - OCTOBER 2019
Angel Olsen's 4th album and follow-up to 2016's My Woman is her most ambitious and grandioso album to-date, with a 12-piece string section for good measure! All Mirrors sees Olsen reinventing her sound once again as she has done on each of her four records, and she's never sounded so confidently vulnerable from the musical arrangements to the lyrics. An instant classic!

"Olsen’s artistic beginnings as a collaborator shifted seamlessly to her magnificent, cryptic-to-cosmic solo work and then she formed bands to play her songs and her stages and audiences grew exponentially. But all along, Olsen was more concerned with a different kind of path and on her vulnerable, Big Mood new album, ‘All Mirrors’, we can see her taking an introspective deep dive towards internal destinations and revelations. In the process of making this album, she found a new sound and voice, a blast of fury mixed with hard won self-acceptance. “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,” says Olsen. “Finding the capacity for new love and trusting change, even when you feel like a stranger. This is a record about facing yourself and learning to forgive what you see. It is about losing empathy, trust, love for destructive people. It is about walking away from the noise and realizing that you can have solitude and peace in your own thoughts, that your thoughts alone can be just as valid, if not more.” Her previous full length album, ‘My Woman’, was one of 2016’s most critically lauded albums of the year. The new album was produced by John Congleton (St Vincent, John Grant, Future islands, Goldfrapp, Spoon, Sleater Kinney) and has strings arranged by Jherek Bischoff. A wildly ambitious record - by far Olsen’s boldest, expansive and immersive work to date."
