Angel Olsen ⟡ Hand Habits


Angel Olsen

On her vulnerable new album, All Mirrors, Olsen takes 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. All Mirrors gets its claws into you on both micro and macro levels. Of course, there’s that singular vibrato, always so very close — seemingly simple, cooed phrases expand into massive ideas about the inability to love and universal loneliness. And then suddenly — huge string arrangements and bellowing synth swells emerge, propelling the apocalyptic tenor.

Hand Habits

On placeholder, the second album from Meg Duffy’s Hand Habits, the singer/songwriter orbits a stinging absence, ruminating on the ephemeral nature of emotional attachment. Alongside Big Thief and recent Deerhunter albums, Hand Habits are part of a strong contingent of contemporary acts staging queer stories against a wistful Americana backdrop. A guitarist in Kevin Morby’s band and a recent collaborator to William Tyler, Duffy hails from Los Angeles via upstate New York.
